New Browns coach has spoken to Carson Wentz but not Johnny Manziel

The future of Johnny Manziel in Cleveland has become progressively bleak over recent weeks. 

The former first-round pick has seen his stock fall from starting Browns quarterback to likely free agent thanks to a combination of his continued off-field issues and the arrival of Hue Jackson as the franchise's new head coach.

And a revelation this week from the ongoing Senior Bowl only adds weight to the idea that Manziel's days in Cleveland are numbered.

That's because, as per Cleveland Plain Dealer reporter Mary Kay Cabot, Jackson has already met with and spoken to Carson Wentz, the North Dakota quarterback causing something of a stir at the college football showcase.

Jackson's dealings with Manziel, meanwhile, are non-existent so far. According to Pro Football Talk, the quarterback was not in "the first batch" of players contacted by Jackson, and the pair are yet to talk.

The new Browns HC said it "was good to talk to" Wentz and, having already said that he'd be happy to take a new quarterback in the first two rounds of the 2016 NFL draft, it looks like he is doing the ground work to find Manziel's replacement.

Manziel was, of course, Cleveland's first-round choice just two years ago. Having struggled to adapt to the NFL - both on and off the gridiron - it looks like the Browns are doing their due diligence before trying their luck once again.

Wentz, in a year disrupted by injury, threw 17 touchdowns and only four interceptions during the 2015 college season.
