Johnny Manziel has found humor in reflecting on his challenging tenure with the Cleveland Browns, as demonstrated by his reaction to a viral statistic. Jason Lloyd of The Athletic highlighted that Joe Flacco is approaching, within a margin of 72 yards, Johnny Manziel’s entire passing yardage during his time with the Browns.
Despite Manziel’s 1,675 passing yards still ranking 31st in Browns franchise history, Flacco rapidly ascended to 33rd in just five games.
The attention-grabbing statistic reached Manziel on social media, and he seemed unfazed by the possibility of Flacco surpassing his record. Manziel’s response was light-hearted: “Some records were meant to be broken.”
Originally a highly anticipated first-round pick in 2014, Manziel’s NFL journey was cut short after two seasons due to off-field issues and a perceived lack of commitment to his career. It appears that Manziel has come to accept the reality of his situation.
In the end, Flacco fell short of surpassing Manziel’s mark during the mentioned game, needing an additional 60 yards to achieve the feat. However, with the potential for meaningful playing time in the Browns’ season finale against Cincinnati, Flacco is expected to reach or exceed that milestone.
