Marshawn Lynch, Austin Ekeler, Richard Sherman and Dalvin Cook all own teams in the league. Manziel’s squad takes on the Sherman Glacier Boyz in Atlanta on Saturday.

    “It looks exactly the same as it did five or 15 years ago,” Manziel said of t.o. “The guy is a legend.”

    although it has been seven years since manziel left cleveland, the browns hadn’t found a franchise quarterback until they acquired deshaun watson. now, they are looking to trade baker mayfield, the world no. 1 overall pick in 2018.

    manziel can understand what mayfield is going through.

    “I try to stay out of a lot of the drama of cleveland and what surrounds the browns, but being friends with baker and having a lot of friends in common, we spend a little time together here and there”. Manziel said. “He has a good head on his shoulders. I think he’s got a lot of his career ahead of him, and he’s going to put himself in a situation just because cleveland doesn’t want him anymore, obviously, with the decisions that they’ve made. he’s going to land on his feet and I think he’s going to end up somewhere where he can succeed. I wish him nothing but the best.”
