Now that the Cleveland Browns Jerseys have resolved to cut ties with Johnny Manziel Jerseys once the new league year starts in March, the next question is whether football’s tabloid sensation has an NFL future.

As an early-round draft pick with a penchant for partying, the natural comparison is to Brett Favre, who once conceded that he “tried to drink up Atlanta” as a Falcons rookie in 1991.

“I had to get him out of Atlanta. … I could not sober him up,” former Falcons coach Jerry Glanville explained. “I sent him to a city where at 9:00 at night the only thing that’s open is Chili Joe’s. … And that’s what made Brett Favre make a comeback was going to a town that closed down.”

Green Bay was the NFL’s outpost in the pre-internet era of the early 1990s, shutting Favre off from temptation and prying eyes. That situation cannot be duplicated in 2016, with Twitter, Instagram and Snapchat turning Manziel’s missteps into instantaneous tabloid fodder.

Whereas Favre boasted the prototypical size and arm strength to excel in any offensive scheme, Manziel comes with on-field questions in addition to the off-the-field concerns.

Slightly built at 6-foot-0 and just over 200 pounds, Manziel is an injury risk as a scrambling quarterback who can’t consistently escape the clutches of linebackers and defensive ends like he did in college.

Although he showed flashes of potential in six 2015 starts, Manziel has trouble running the coaches’ offense, operating best as a sandlot-style quarterback once the play breaks down.

His 57.0 completion rate ranks 42nd out of 44 quarterbacks with at least 250 pass attempts over the past two seasons.

Is that limited package worth a flier if it comes with a media circus reminiscent of Tim Tebow’s ill-fated stint with the Jets? Unlike Tebow, Manziel is saddled with issues of trust, dependability and commitment to football.

If Manziel does receive a second chance, the natural connection custom nfl jerseys is to his home-state Dallas Cowboys Jerseys and Houston Texans Jerseys.

On the prowl for a backup to Tony Romo Jerseys, Cowboys owner Jerry Jones hinted last month that Manziel is worth the risk. Jones was so intent on drafting Manziel two years ago that he was still “damn mad” about missing out four months after the Texas A&M star landed in Cleveland.

Manziel’s image is so damaged in league circles, however, that he might have to show contrition and spend another offseason at a rehabilitation clinic to attract an offer.

“I’m not sure either of those [Texas] teams is actually interested in Manziel, mainly because of his off-the-field behavior,” NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport said Tuesday. “If he cleans it up, I think they could be. But at this point, I would not expect interest from either of those teams for Manziel in his current state.”

Second chances in professional sports are directly proportional to talent level. It will be fascinating to see where Manziel falls on that spectrum going forward.

The Doug Whaley era marches on in Buffalo.

Bills co-owner Kim Pegula announced via Twitter on Sunday that Buffalo has signed the general manager to a contract extension. Whaley had only one year left on his contract. NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reports that Whaley’s new deal is a multi-year extension.

“As our first full season as owners of the Buffalo Bills Jerseys draws to a close, management, coaches, players, and fans all feel that our expectations were not met,” co-owner Terry Pegula wrote. “Kim (Pegula), nike nfl jerseys Russ (Brandon) and I look forward to working and collaborating with Doug Whaley and Rex Ryan in forming a winning future for the organization. Our management team and coaching staff are very capable and work well together. This stable foundation is necessary to achieve long term success in the NFL.”

The Bills’ commitment to Whaley comes as a bit of a surprise. Whaley’s future had been reported at other outlets as in doubt. Whaley’s first-round quarterback (EJ Manuel Jerseys) has not panned out and there had been whispers about Ryan and Whaley being at odds.

This extension also follows a report from The Buffalo News’ Vic Carucci last week that during Terry Pegula’s 2015 post-mortem meeting with Ryan and general manager Doug Whaley, the owner gave the duo an ultimatum: make the playoffs or lose your jobs. If that was the case last week, it appears that the owners have had a sudden change of heart — at least with Whaley — given time to process how the season transpired.
