Johnny Manziel seen drunk in Texas during Browns bye week

When Cleveland Browns' quarterback Johnny Manziel entered rehab in the off-season, everyone wondered if it was the start of a new Johnny Football?

Through the first 10 weeks of the season, it has appeared to be a new Johnny Manziel as he has worked his way up to the Browns starting quarterback position.

Johnny be bad... again

Manziel has started three games this season and appeared in a further three amassing over 900 passing yards, throwing five touchdowns for only two interceptions.

He has looked like the Manziel of old on the field and just when everyone was starting to think his old life was behind him, the Browns went onto their bye week.

During the Browns week off, Manziel was still making headlines but for the first time in a while, it was for the wrong reasons.

Manziel was spotted in a nightclub in Austin, Texas on Friday night and while everyone is allowed some down time, Manziel took two nights.

Visiting the RIO rooftop nightclub on Thursday then another Austin nightclub on Friday, Manziel clearly had an enjoyable trip away from Cleveland during his bye week.

Everyone blows off steam and while Manziel didn't get into any trouble, the concern for Manziel and Browns fans is that he was seen heavily drinking and quite intoxicated.

Manziel was quoted before the bye week that he wouldn't do anything that would...

"be a distraction to this team or an embarrassment to the this organisation."

Clearly Manziel's definition of spending his days relaxing is somewhat different to everyone else's, but if he returns fit and able to play, was there really any harm?

Time to shape up

The Browns are back in action next weekend and coming off of a 30-9 loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers last week, they will be eager to get a much needed win.

Standing at 2-8, the Browns will be hopeful of a win against the equally bad Baltimore Ravens - whose problems have tripled.

The Ravens are 3-7 and after losing star wide receiver Steve Smith earlier this season, they lost starting runningback Justin Forsett and quarterback Joe Flacco on Sunday to season ending injuries.
