The MMQB wrote a scathing piece — detailing Johnny Manziel’s blistering downfall with the Cleveland Browns through conversation with friends, family, Texas A&M officials and those close to the situation.
Manziel and James grew into close friends — with the Cavs star playing the role of big-brother/mentor. According to the MMQB, those close to Manziel grew frustrated when he allegedly stopped listening to LeBron James.
“When he had LeBron James as a mentor, texting him all the time, hanging out at his house watching football, and Johnny didn’t listen to his advice? That’s when I knew he had a problem,” one of Manziel’s former coaches said.
