Johnny Football Gets Traded


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.
