Manziel not changing a thing

CLEVELAND, OH (WOIO) -

Johnny Manziel has responded to the media for his latest weekend adventures. Manziel was questioned at a Play 60 event Friday and responded with a "shocking " answer to his critics.

"I'm not going to change for anybody," Manziel said. "I'm going to enjoy my time off."

The event, part of the NFL Rookie Symposium, was held at the Browns facility. And you can bet there was some media coverage around it.

Much of the media coverage related directly to Johnny Football, who's getting sick of seeing his name in headlines.

"I want to wake up with a week and not have my name going through something," Manziel said. "And I'm working on getting better at that, but if I want to go back home and spend time with my friends or go out and enjoy my weekends I absolutely have the right to do that."

It's absolutely Manziel's prerogative to do whatever he wants on his own time, especially in the offseason.

"I don't think I'm doing anything wrong," Manziel said. "Everybody on the weekends goes out and enjoys their life. Just for them, they don't have people that when they walk into a place pull out their phone and all they want to do is follow me around and record everything.

Whether or not the Browns will win is a different matter and if they don't, people will assuredly point to Manziel's off-field antics as a cause if he struggles, right or wrong. (Mostly wrong.)

But that won't mean a change for him in the future.
