Manziel’s NFL career lasted all of two seasons and 14 games. A lack of film study during that time likely contributed to his short stay in the league.
Manziel admitted during the Netflix documentary Untold: Johnny Football that he didn’t watch a single minute of tape during his two terrible seasons with the Cleveland Browns.
The former Heisman Trophy winner and Cleveland Browns quarterback’ agent, during his two-year NFL stint, Erik Burkhardt, said in the documentary that Cleveland’s general manager at the time, Ray Farmer, would call him complaining that Manziel was not watching any tape.
“I’m like, ‘Well, he’s gotta watch some tape,'” Burkhardt said.
Burkhardt went on to explain that Manziel’s iPad showed “0.00” minutes watched.
The documentary cut to Manziel who said “Zero,” while making a “zero” sign with his hand.
Manziel started only eight games in the NFL despite being a first-round draft pick.
Watching him play on the field should’ve been the first clue that he wasn’t putting in the work, but now we are hearing it from him firsthand. Manziel’s two-year career was brutal. After being a first-round pick he threw for 1,675 yards, seven touchdowns and seven interceptions in 14 games.
