Manziel has faced controversy with the Browns since his signing in 2014.

The Cleveland Brownshave announced that they’re waiving quarterback JohnnyManziel.

The Heisman Trophy winner has created nothing but controversy for himself since he was drafted by the team in 2014. Manzielmost recently made news for analleged fightwith his former girlfriend in Dallas, Texas.

WKSU commentator Terry Pluto compares the Browns picking of Manziel to putting water in a gas tank. He says it’s crucial now that the Browns make wise choices with their upcoming picks.

“Ya’ gotta’ clean the whole tank out, buy a new car, whatever. And you’re just behind. So they have to start making sure they make these first round picks count. It’s huge. It really is.”

Manziel’s waiver lasts until 4 p.m. Saturday and any team can choose to pick him up. If he’s not claimed, he becomes a free agent.
