Browns not worried about Manziel's partying
BEREA, Ohio (AP) The Browns aren't worried about Johnny Manziel running out of bounds off the field. Or floating on pool rafts. After a weekend of partying in Texas, where he was photographed floating on an inflatable swan while drinking champagne in a nightclub pool, Manziel was on the field Tuesday as the Browns opened a mandatory three-day minicamp. The team is not making their popular Heisman Trophy-winning rookie quarterback - or starter Brian Hoyer - available to the media this week. Manziel has left Cleveland each of the past three weekends, first taking a trip to Las Vegas, then to Los Angeles for a seminar with other rookies and then to his home state, where in addition to having some fun, he got drafted by the San Diego Padres and attended Game 2 of the NBA finals in San Antonio, sitting near Miami's bench while wearing a retro Cavaliers' cap. Following practice, Browns first-year coach Mike Pettine said he's not worried about how his young QB spends his free time. "I'm not concerned," Pettine said. "I would become concerned if it was something criminal and I would be concerned if it affected his job. There's a lot of our guys, if when they leave here if they were followed around, you'd get some very similar pictures. I don't know about an inflatable swan, but you'd still get some pictures." Manziel has said he intends to keep living his life to the fullest, and Pettine doesn't feel the need to monitor the 21-year-old's every move.

Why do you think the Giants get the benefit of the doubt and the Jets don't?
Why would you think the color of a player's uniform would determine if partying was a good/bad idea?
Just because some organizations are run more successfully than others doesn't mean its players are immune to the same potential dangers any other players must beware of (see Hernandez, Aaron or Burress, Plaxico if you need further illustration) . . .
