    I don't know. Maybe he is doing it. In which case he'll need to be tested. BUT if I were to see you going into a hotel room with your wife or girlfriend, and I were to take a picture of that and say "look, so and so has paid a hooker!" I can't do that.

    If Johnny Manziel is indeed doing coke, he'll get his. But this story shouldn't be the cause of that. That's all I'm saying.

    You could say it if you wanted. All you would have to do is make a correction later on if I contested it. The papers do it all of the time. "Oops sorry". It is just like when lawyer blurts something out in a trial to let the jury know what really happened even if the evidence is inadmissible. Then the judge says to strike it from the record. The notion is already planted.

    If he is rolling dollar bills then anyone with any idea would be able to safely assume that he is doing lines in the john.

    Leinart comes to mind here. And so does JaMarcus Russell as well.

    Rolling a bill in the bathroom of a nightclub...... Cmon you guys have your heads in the sand if you think it's for anything but hoovering substances up your nose.

    This situation is not going to end well unless this boy decides to act like a man.

    .... truthfully he should be ashamed of himself but I would bet money he lacks the mechanism to even do that..... does he even have the ability to think about the endorsements that he's flushing down the drain every day..... he had the potential to be one of the most marketable college athletes in years and now nobody would want to be anywhere near him.......

    I know I'm a bit late but I agree with the OP. I watched a lot of Manziel tape and I saw a guy a mobile guy who had the decision making qualities and poise of a rattled Jake Plummer.

    MAYBE we could avoid that if Manziel himself got hurt first.

    MAYBE.

    Teams Glad They Passed on Johnny Manziel
    Updated July 11, 2014
    By Charlie Campbell - @draftcampbell
    There were a number of quarterback-needy teams that were considering drafting Johnny Manziel prior to the 2014 NFL Draft. However, many franchises in search of a franchise quarterback opted to pass on Manziel. That group included Jacksonville, Houston, Minnesota, Oakland and Tampa Bay. Other teams with a lesser need at quarterback gave him consideration before going with other players. Those teams included the Rams, Titans and Cowboys.
    With Manziel continuing to indulge in his partying and celebrity lifestyle, sources from a few of those teams have said they feel better about passing on Manziel.
    During pre-draft interviews, sources told us that Manziel said that his off-the-field celebrity was overblown, and it wouldn’t be issue as a pro. He claimed that he got caught up in the post-Heisman hype and didn’t do a good job of saying "no" to a wide variety of invitations. He said that would change in the NFL and partying wouldn’t be a problem as a pro, or serve as a distraction.
    However, after his latest visit to Las Vegas with pictures of him rolling dollar bills in a bathroom, a number of teams have said they feel increasingly happy that they took a pass on him.
    Sources say that at this point, they feel that Manziel is addicted to the spotlight and loves the attention. They believe that Cleveland is going to have to give him some strict discipline and keep him on a tight leash. The Browns could use the examples of Aaron Rodgers, Drew Brees and Peyton Manning as great NFL quarterbacks who do some endorsements but aren’t making a spectacle of their off-the-field lifestyle.
    A few teams feel that Manziel’s answers were coached up before his interviews and that his actions prove they weren’t genuine. Sources say they were intrigued but wary of Manziel. He has something special about him, but with his off-the-field maturity continuing to be an issue, they feel even better about passing on him.

    I believe Johnny Football convinced LeBron to return to Cleveland......Now if he can get him to put on some pads & play wr......Or get a crew to follow Gordon and keep him outta trouble....Maybe get him married up...

    Still think Manziel's biggest problem is that he won't be able to throw the football up for grams - oops, my bad - in the NFL. Seriously though - he was bailed out so many times on bad throws by a receiver that was plain bigger and knew that he would need to be ready for jump balls. His arm will have to beat some defenses before they can't shadow him with a quick LB or Safety.

    He has a lil arm on him...But he seems too jumpy in the pocket, doubt he knows how to progress through reads, and my main concern, is he a hard worker? I agree, Evans looked like he made him great. Time will tell....

    if we take a look back at recent history, this kid hasnt only been making a spectacle of himself since he has been drafted. He was doing this at A&M and prior to the draft also. Wasnt there a story about him being hung over at Peyton Mannings camp a few years ago?
