Former Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel apologizes for wasting part of Joe Thomas’ career. Or maybe he’s trying to stay relevant.
Perhaps he’s trying to stay relevant as ‘comeback season’ hasnt Gone according to plan. Former Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel was a complete flameout with the team and has been trying to clean up his image as of late.
Manziel tried to get back into the NFL this season, going as far as holding workouts like he was a college prospect hosting a pro day. No one bit, and he took his act north.
After starting with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, Johnny Football was traded to Montreal, where he was at least able to play, but it wasn’t pretty.

That won’t stop him from trying to stay in the spotlight as Manziel made his way to the “Thomahawk” podcast where he admitted to, and apologized for, wasting some of the career of Joe Thomas according to Josh Edwards of 247 Sports.
Thomas was often critical of Manziel, who came to the Browns in the 2014 NFL Draft out of Texas A&M. While he had talent, Manziel cared much more about partying and didn’t worry himself at all with preparation. Thomas, a consummate professional, called out the star’s lackadaisical approach to the game, and rightfully so.
Manziel even ripped the Browns for not doing their homework on him as if it were their fault he didn’t care about football.
While it’s a nice step to apologize to Thomas, Manziel has a long way to go to earn forgiveness with the Browns. He treated them like garbage after they believed in him and his comment about them not doing their homework was uneccesary.
