Browns reportedly ‘alarmed’ by Johnny Manziel’s partying, feel he’s regressed

Given his somewhat nefarious history and penchant for partying, not to mention his unorthodox style of quarterbacking, Johnny Manziel was perceived by many scouts, NFL front office types and others as something of a risk.

Charles Tillman’s training camp dorm room looks straight out of a hovel (photo)
