Just when you thought the Johnny Manziel saga in Cleveland could not get any stranger, it did over the weekend, and then some. The enigmatic 23-year-old quarterback was reportedly spotted in Las Vegas, despite being out for the final game of the season due to a concussion.
A professional athlete in their 20s taking a trip to Vegas to do a little partying is a tale as old as time, but Johnny Football added a new twist to things. He was spotted, according to multiple witnesses, skulking about in a blonde wig and sunglasses while introducing himself as “Billy” to casino goers.
His time as a member of the Browns organization is almost certainly over, but it has been one of the more entertaining rides for a guy who has only played parts of 14 games over two seasons.
With his bizarre actions, he was tailor-made for a Match Game by Tim and Sid — we are a little surprised he hasn’t been already: “This past weekend, Johnny Manziel was also spotted at ____”
