Manziel in hot water again

Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel could be in more trouble with coach Mike Pettine after another video of him partying emerged.

Manziel, seen wearing a 'Merry Manziel' T-shirt, is shown singing in the clip which is alleged to have been filmed on Christmas Eve, three days before Sunday's match with the Kansas City Chiefs.

That comes just a few weeks after a similar video of him doing the same thing was published and it remains to be seen if he will face action like he did then.

Last month, Manziel lost his place in the Browns' team as their starting quarterback after he lied to coaches about when it was filmed.

The 23-year-old was demoted to third string and also spent 10 weeks in rehab earlier this year for what was termed at the time as unspecified personal problems.

While coach Pettine has been happy with Manziel's approach to playing and practice, he is likely to discuss the matter with him.

Pettine said: "Any time there's something with our players that casts them potentially in a bad light, whether it's Johnny or any of our other guys, it's certainly a concern.

"I'm sure I'll see (the video) and have a discussion with him about it. These circumstances are different from the incident that occurred before.

"I'm just not going to go into a ton of detail with it until I get a little bit more information about it. It's something that I'm sure privately we'll discuss, if it needs to be discussed.

"I don't have all the information on it. I am just not going to comment on it at this time because I don't have all the facts with it. The thing that is disappointing is how public it becomes, and it is something that with all the players.

"We are going to sit down with them before they get out of here and see where they are personally and professionally, and certainly, Johnny will be no exception."
