Cleveland Browns Rumors: Johnny Manziel called a "100 percent joke" by teammate, per report

The Cleveland Browns/Johnny Manziel saga has reached yet another chapter, with one teammate reportedly not too impessed with the 2014 first-round pick's first season in Northeast Ohio.

"As one player put it, Manziel throughout the entire 2014 season was a '100 percent joke,'"'s Pat McManamon and Jeremy Fowler reported on Friday.

Looking at Manziel's disastrous first start in a 30-0 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals, there was reportedly plenty of troubling signs that all was not right with Manziel's preparation.

"But more than once, teammates corrected the play-call in the huddle, or headed to the line hoping things would work because the call was wrong," McManamon and Fowler wrote. "Sometimes, the offense would get lined up wrong because Manziel forgot to read the whole play or got the verbiage wrong (saying 'left' instead of 'right,' for example)."

The ESPN duo add that "one Browns staffer said he believed Manziel didn't get tough love when attention to detail wasn't there," signaling that things may need to change and change dramatically all both sides of the coin for the Johnny Cleveland-era of Browns football to get off the ground.
