Browns rookie Johnny Manziel told the media today that he’s spoken to head coach Mike Pettine and general manager Ray Farmer about his off the field actions this offseason.
“Me and coach (Mike) Pettine and (GM) Ray Farmer really talked about a lot of things that transpired over the course of the offseason,” Manziel said Friday. “The main thing is people within this building, my teammates, the coaching staff, the higher-ups in this organization — we’ve all been on the same page, we’ve all been good and we’re very eager to be moving forward.”
Manziel says he’s made some rookie mistakes.
“At the end of the day, I’ve made some rookie mistakes, there’s some things I wish I could have gone back and done a little differently, but continuing to move forward and try to represent this organization in a positive manner and a positive light.”
Manziel of course was about rolling a $20 bill in a bathroom.
“I just spoke on that a little bit,” Manziel replied. “I’ve talked about that with that coach Pettine, I’ve talked about it with Ray Farmer and the people I need to talk about that with and moving forward they’re good with everything and I’ve told them everything that I need to and everything’s been good.”
Even though Manziel said he made mistakes, he claims he has a right to party.
“I don’t think there’s anything wrong with me going out and having a nightlife and having a social life,” he said. “I am 21 years old, and I do like going out. It was the offseason, free time for us, and if I want to go out, hang out with my friends or go to nightclubs or do things like that, I think that’s within my rights to be doing that.”
