So they'll let a homeless guy choose their quarterback, but they won't let one actually play quarterback. Nice to see they draw the line somewhere.

Shouldn't he be saying "Gig 'em, Aggies"?

I figured he would say it sarcastically.

Or just shake his hands at him and do that hissing sound.

either one would do in this situation.

Nah, probably would just flash the horns down sign and keep on walking quietly.  Vince is a big guy, would probably plant the mini-QB if he could catch him.

On the plus side, the Browns signed Joe Haden to 2019 and now he's the highest-paid CB.

I'm curious to see how Connor Shaw plays into the Browns' system and whether he makes the team outright or just as the scout-team version of Manziel. He has a very weak throwing arm for the NFL, but outran and outjumped Manziel at the combine. Plus, a guy who has a 25:1 TD/INT ratio as a senior and goes undefeated for his career at home in the SEC is not exactly a pushover and by all accounts on a personal level he's sort of the anti-Manziel.

It's not that I'm such a Gamecock homer that I think he has a chance to unseat the first round pick, but I'm just curious whether the Browns actually see potential that he could run a similar offense as Manziel and be a suitable third-stringer in that sense, or if he's just scout-team depth.

Man, say what you want about the Cleveland Browns but you can't question their commitment to destroying the careers of Quarterbacks. Look at this Young situation. The took it to a whole new level by signing a QB who's career was already in the shiatter and then cut him before he could reach the field...likely ensuring that his final pro contract will have been with the Cleveland Browns. That's efficiency!

Johnny will just run past a Cheesecake Factory and be home-free.

And in tomorrow's news, Vince Young will be picked up from free agency by the Baltimore Ravens. :P

I think the joke refers to the photo floating around the internet of a shirtless Manziel with a Longhorn tattoo on his ribs.

there's a "Hail Hydra" joke here somewhere

Vince just waved his hand...the one with the National Championship ring on it.

Plenty of evidence to show that talent aside, a rookie that can't get his personal life together does not succeed as a player either. Manziel is high risk for failure in that respect, like Young was.

Manziel never played against Texas.

Bullitt: Manziel never played against Texas.


Doesn't matter, the animosity of the rivalry is still there, and hopefully they will start playing each other again in a few more years

Since Manziel will be playing for the Browns, maybe he meant to say, "So long, sucker," or
possibly "Good luck, pal, you're gonna need it!" (The Browns are one of the few NFL teams that
can rival the Lions in suckiness...maybe Lake Erie is contaminating them both?)
