CALL HIM JOHNNY NO-FOOTBALL: BROWNS PUT MANZIEL ON WAIVERS

By Jack Ryan

Change his name to Johnny No-Football!

The Cleveland Browns, as expected, placed quarterback Johnny Manziel on waivers today, ending a turbulent two-year relationship defined by brief glimpses of on-field potential and numerous off-field incidents that sullied his reputation.

Manziel, known as Johnny Football, will now be on the waiver wire until 4 p.m. Saturday, where any team can claim him. If not claimed, he becomes a free agent.

The Browns had telegraphed the move with their statements in recent weeks following the altercation between Manziel and his former girlfriend at a downtown Dallas hotel on Jan. 30. Dallas police have taken the domestic violence case to a grand jury to determine whether Manziel should be indicted on misdemeanor assault charges.

Valerie Obregon, a spokesperson Dallas County District Attorney, said that the case has not been presented to the grand jury — or even scheduled.
