“In training camp, I don’t think he’ll go out at all,” Evans said at the rookie symposium, via Cleveland.com. “He’ll be committed and devoted and fighting for a starting job.”
Evans didn’t care how much Manziel partied in college because of how successful he was on the field.
“Yeah, absolutely,” he said. “In college when he was doing it, I didn’t care as long as he was coming to play ball. He’s commitment to the team. He’s a competitor, and he wants to win. What he does off the field is none of my business.”
Evans says Manziel is one of his best friends.
“He’s a great guy,” said Evans. “He practiced hard. He came to work. He’s one of my best friends. So I wouldn’t trade him for anybody. I think he’ll be a great pro. He’s a great guy. He’s a better guy than most people give him credit for.”
