NFL Notes: Johnny Manziel, Colin Kaepernick, Giants, Packers & Steelers

Johnny Manziel

  • Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer believes that Johnny Manziel‘s demotion to the third string could mark the end of his time with the Browns.
  • Cabot insists that the Browns will target a quarterback in the first-round of the 2016 NFL Draft, since the team will likely have a top five selection.
  • Cabot lists Memphis’ Paxton Lynch, California’s Jared Goff, and Michigan State’s Connor Cook as first-round draft prospects for Cleveland.
