Johnny Manziel may be washed up with the Cleveland Browns after the often-trouble quarterback missed a concussion treatment session at the team's training facility on Sunday and was reportedly gambling in Las Vegas.
Sports Illustrated's Peter King tweeted that the Browns may have finally tired of Manziel after the latest incident. Owner Johnny Haslam has already fired coach Mike Pettine and general manager Ray Farmer, noted the Akron Beacon Journal.
"So, yeah, there's a good chance — no matter who the next head coach is — that Manziel has taken his final snap in Cleveland," said Ed Edholm, of Yahoo Sports
ESPN Las Vegas reportedly said Manziel was out Saturday night in Vegas wearing a blonde wig, fake mustache and glasses while using a fake name to avoid being spotted.

said that even before Manziel's Las Vegas vacation this past weekend, a new coach and general manager would have a hard time taking on the baggage the former Heisman Trophy winner comes with.
"In a quarterback league, the new coach and general manager will have to determine if Manziel can be a viable long-term solution for a franchise that has had one of the worst long-term quarterback situations in league history," said Freeman. "The answer to 'Should a new coach keep Manziel?' is: Hell no. How anyone would ever trust Manziel now is beyond me."

, said that while missing the concussion treatment alone may warrant just a suspension, Manziel has been in trouble for the same infraction.
"… He reportedly missed a training session in December of 2014 and needed team personnel to locate him," Bode wrote. "Nor is it the only type of blemish on Manziel's record. Sadly, Manziel's entire professional tenure has been known for far too many issues and mistakes off the field of play rather than anything of substance on the field."
