The Cleveland Browns need to move on from quarterback Johnny Manziel. Just cut him and move on.

It’s in the best interest of the them moving forward. He has been nothing but a problem for the team in the lass than two years that he’s been in their organization.

Manziel, in his latest incident, was reportedly pulled over on Monday involving an incident with his girlfriend in what is being called a “domestic dispute.” He admitted to drinking and a witness called the cops on him as he was driving 90 mph on the shoulder.

This is a very troubling report, as not only was he putting his life in danger, but he was putting others in danger, as well. This is completely unacceptable for a guy, who has troubling problems since he came into the league.

The Browns, who used a first-round pick on him last year, knew that he was just a short-term quarterback for the team, as they looked to find something better down the road. Right now, Manziel is the backup to starter Josh McCown, who is also another short-term answer as they continue to search for their franchise signal-caller.

When McCown was out, Manziel did have a good game against the Tennessee Titans. However, there comes a time when a player burns enough bridges, even if he can perform for your team, and must move on.

That’s the case here, as there have been Browns players that didn’t even want him in their locker room last year. There’s teammates have said that Manziel was a bad teammate, and he even admitted to it.

People thought he could change, but he hasn’t changed at all. His troubling past goes all the way back to when he was a player with the Texas A&M Aggies.

The only way for the Browns to move on is to outright release him. That’s what they need to do and get this dark cloud away from their organization.
