Readers here already know that I am from Kansas City and grew up a Chiefs fan. When the Browns moved up ahead of the Chiefs in the draft to take Manziel, I was SO bummed out! I wanted him to be a Chief in the worst way. Turns out he was a Brown in the worst way!
In case you’re wondering, here are the terms of the deal: In the deal, Hamilton acquired defensive end Jamaal Westerman, wide receiver Chris Williams and two first-round draft picks (2020, 2021) from the Alouettes in exchange for Manziel, offensive lineman Tony Washington and offensive lineman Landon Rice.
Manziel, 25, was added before the season but couldn’t unseat incumbent Jeremiah Masoli. The lack of playing time wasn’t considered a huge issue; Tiger-Cats coach June Jones said last month that Manziel should be in the NFL, where he last played in December 2015.
I still hope the knucklehead gets another shot in the NFL.
