BEREA, Ohio (AP) — Johnny Manziel expects life in the NFL to be even crazier than college.
Selected in the first round of the draft by the Cleveland Browns, Manziel was introduced Friday to a soundtrack of whirring cameras as he took the initial steps of his pro career. Humble and self-assured, Manziel said he’s entering the league “expecting madness” around him to continue.
Manziel says he’s learned from past mistakes and vowed to earn the respect of his new teammates, who may have their doubts about “Johnny Football.”
Manziel’s arrival in Cleveland has triggered a boost in season-ticket sales and fans lined up to buy his No. 2 jersey.
