Browns’ Johnny Manziel Could Be Placed On Paid Leave
The NFL is investigating Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel for a recent driving incident... but he may receive discipline from the league, if it feels he violated the personal conduct policy.
According to ESPN, the policy states that anyone believed by commissioner Roger Goodell to be in violation can be placed on paid leave at any time.
Manziel made headlines last week, when reports revealed that he was stopped by police and questioned after witnesses saw him and girlfriend Colleen Crowley arguing in a vehicle. The couple admitted to arguing, and Manziel told police they had been drinking earlier in the day, though officers determined that Manziel was not intoxicated. Neither was arrested or charged.
The NFL has not commented on the investigation, which is routine when a possible violation of the policy occurs.
