Johnny Manziel: CUT By Cleveland Browns!

by at .

Given his recent streak of troubling behavior and questionable decision making, it was only a matter of time before Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel faced some serious discipline from his team.

Now, TMZ is reporting that in a move that's unlikely to come as a surprise to many, the Browns announced on Twitter moments ago that they've cut Manziel from their roster.

No explanation was given, but in this case, no explanation is necessary.

Manziel has had character issues since his college days, and he was considered a risk when the browns drafted him as the 22nd overall pick in 2014.

The Heisman Trophy winner proved his critics right early on, appearing to be more interested in partying than in football and turning lackluster performances on the field.

Manziel entered rehab last month, but he stayed for less then a week, and it quickly became clear that whatever treatment he received was ineffective.

The same week that he left the facility, reports of Manziel abusing his girlfriend went public, and the 23-year-old is currently under investigation by a grand jury.

But even with all of his personal troubles, it's unlikely that the NFL has seen the last of the man dubbed Johnny Football.

At least three teams have reportedly shown in interest in signing Manziel for the 2016 season.

Though he has yet to issue a statement, insiders say the former top prospect is not concerned about his career, a claim that seems to be corroborated by the fact that Manziel was spotted partying with reality star Scott Disick in Las Vegas earlier this week.
