CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) –
According to the NFL Network’s Twitter account and ESPN reports, Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel will be released from the team.
The NFL Network says the cut will occur when the new league year begins on March 9, 2016. ESPN says that the Browns will not release him in February, as that would count $4.6 million against the salary cap in place. The cap will increase in March, which is when they are reportedly going to release Manziel.
ESPN also noted that the Browns could try to trade Manziel, but due to his continual issues in his life off the football field, would likely have little success in getting any takers.
Manziel’s name came up again this weekend when he had an altercation in Texas with his ex-girlfriend. He was not arrested.
Tuesday afternoon, Cleveland Browns EVP of Football Operations Sashi Brown released the following statement:
“We’ve been clear about expectations for our players on and off the field. Johnny’s continual involvement in incidents that run counter to those expectations undermines the hard work of his teammates and the reputation of our organization. His status with our team will be addressed when permitted by league rules. We will have no further comment at this time.”
