    Schuyler Dixon June 24, 2016 DALLAS (AP) - An attorney handling Johnny Manziel's domestic violence case expressed doubts about the Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback's ability to stay clean and said he was given a receipt that shows Manziel may have spent more than $1,000 at a drug paraphernalia store just 15 hours after he was involved in a hit-and-run crash, according to a lengthy text message accidentally sent to The Associated Press. Defense attorney Bob Hinton's text indicated Manziel's legal team was seeking a plea deal with prosecutors, but suggested that could be tricky. "Heaven help us if one of the...

    Disgraced former NFL quarterback Johnny Manziel is risking another run-in with the law after he allegedly punched a reveler in a Las Vegas nightclub. The Heisman Trophy winner was at Jewel Nightclub in the Aria hotel on Friday watching the grand opening show by Drake when he was jostled by another party-goer and lashed out, TMZ claims. The alleged incident comes while Manziel is already on bail over claims he attacked his ex-girlfriend Colleen Crowley, hitting her so hard she lost hearing in one ear.

    CLEVELAND, OH -- LeBron James has dropped Johnny Manziel as a business client. A spokesman for James said the NBA star and has ended his marketing agreement with Manziel, the embattled Browns quarterback whose behavior has him on very shaky ground with his team and Cleveland fans. James and his associates at LRMR - long-time friends Maverick Carter, Rich Paul and Randy Mims - will no longer be working with Manziel after mutually agreeing to end their partnership. LRMR has been handling endorsement deals for Manziel since he got drafted into the NFL. Cleveland.com first reported the end of James'...

    Johnny Manziel reportedly wore a blond wig, fake mustache and sunglasses to party at a Las Vegas club incognito on Saturday night. Manziel, 23, was ruled out of Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, as per the NFL's post-concussion protocol, but was absent from the required doctor's visit that morning.

    Johnny Manziel lost his starting spot after cameras caught the quarterback partying during his bye week. Browns coach Mike Pettine called the behavior, which comes after an offseason trip to rehab, “disappointing” and “frustrating.” Manziel’s bye-week carousing spoils his national coming-out party previously scheduled for Monday night’s game against the banged-up Baltimore Ravens. Pettine announced on Tuesday Josh McCown will start the game at quarterback. TMZ spotted Manziel on Thursday at the RIO Rooftop & Restaurant nightclub in Austin, where he partied the evening away with friends. The Summit Rooftop Lounge, where he spent the evening boozing on champagne, served...

    The decision to bench Manziel comes just days after a video emerged that seemed to show Manziel partying and holding a bottle of alcohol during the Browns' bye week. "Josh McCown will be the starting quarterback on Monday night against the Ravens. I informed the quarterbacks of that decision after I sat down and spoke with Johnny, Flip (John DeFilippo) and Kevin (O'Connell) after practice today," Pettine said in a statement.

    The name on the card that night in May seemed to draw as much anxiety as it did excitement. Johnny Manziel, Quarterback, Texas A&M. The former Heisman Trophy winner had been passed over 21 times, prompting a text from Manziel to then-Browns quarterbacks coach Dowell Loggains that he wanted to "wreck this league" in Cleveland. The words were actually more R-rated, but the implication was clear. Twitter erupted at the selection. A Cleveland radio host cheered and screamed openly on air. Manziel gave his "money" sign as he walked onstage to greet Roger Goodell. By season's end, cheering had turned...

    Johnny Manziel gives middle finger toward Redskins By Chris WesselingAround the League Writer Johnny Manziel's most effective throw of the night was the middle finger in the direction of the Washington Redskins sideline. The Cleveland Browns' rookie quarterback took an earful from Redskins players when he was forced out of bounds in the third quarter. As Manziel jogged away, he responded by casually flipping the bird with his right hand.

    Could Johnny Football ditch the pads and cleats for a future on the diamond as Johnny Baseball? Probably not. But he might want to consider it. The Cleveland Browns quarterback was drafted by the San Diego Padres in the 28th round (No. 837 overall) of the 2014 MLB Draft Saturday. Manziel was listed as a shortstop for Texas A&M, although he hasn't stepped foot on the baseball diamond since his junior year of high school. Apparently, he was a pretty decent infielder and even talked to Texas A&M baseball coaches about joining the team in 2012.

He finished with negative rushing yards for the first time this season and could not get the Ducks on the scoreboard until the fourth quarter, when he threw two touchdowns. The comeback effort fell short after Oregon could not recover a second onside kick.

    COLLEGE STATION, Texas -- Texas A&M's move to the Southeastern Conference was something school president R. Bowen Loftin called a "100-year decision" when it occurred. Turns out it was one of several factors that helped contribute to hundreds of millions in increased donations for the school. The university raised more than $740 million in donations in the past fiscal year, the school announced on Tuesday. The total, documented between Sept. 1, 2012, and Aug. 31, 2013, is a school record and more than $300 million better than any previous 12-month period in the school's history.

    There has certainly been a lot of speculation that no matter what happens with the current NCAA investigation, 2013 will be Johnny Manziel's last season with Texas A&M. And the news that Manziel's parents are selling their College Station home certainly won't quiet that speculation. According to Realtor.com the home that Manziel's parents bought in June 2011 in order to be closer to their son while he was at Texas A&M is currently on the market. The house is just 15 minutes away from the Texas A&M campus. The house was originally listed on April 28 for $405,000 and is...

    At this point of the college football season, with some crucial games still on tap for this weekend, the frontrunners in the Heisman race are A&M's sensational freshman QB Johnny Manziel and game-changer Manti Te'o of Notre Dame. Still in the hunt was once heavily-favored Colin Klein of Kansas State. Vanishing completely after an impressive start is West Virginia's Geno Smith. I'd personally like to see Johnny Manziel win the trophy this year and the odds are evidently in his favor. But, to play the part of a contrarian, here's what could derail the hopes of those backing him for...
