Johnny Manziel ripped by fans after trolling Browns for playoff loss

Browns. Johnny Manziel, Baker Mayfield

The Cleveland Browns fell short of beating the Kansas City Chiefs on Sunday, sending them home from their first postseason berth since 2002. After their narrow loss, Johnny Manziel was ripped by fans when he decided to troll the team on social media.

It all began when Manziel sent out a meme of ESPN’s Stephen A. Smith sipping on a drink, which didn’t well with Cleveland fans. The supporters then began firing back at Manziel due to his meme, although he sent more tweets to say that he wasn’t trying to poke fun at the Browns.

Of course, Manziel was a failed former first-round pick of the Browns from the 2014 NFL Draft. The former Heisman Trophy winner out of Texas A&M played in only two seasons in the NFL in Cleveland, throwing for 1,675 yards, seven touchdowns and seven interceptions in 14 games.

Manziel failed to make an impression in the league due to an array of issues off of the field. The 28-year-old quarterback has played in the CFL and the AAF before now attempting to make it into the new Fan Controlled League.

While Johnny Manziel continues to try and find ways to return to the gridiron, Baker Mayfield is doing what Manziel was expected to do earlier in his career. In his third season in Cleveland, Mayfield led the Browns to an 11-5 record and their first playoff victory since the 1994 campaign.

Even though fans were upset to see Manziel stirring up drama on social media, they are ecstatic to have Mayfield leading the Browns moving forward.
