According to NFL.com, Manziel texted Browns quarterback coach Dowell Loggains to “come get him.”
Cleveland.com says Loggains knew how badly he wanted to be in Cleveland.
“We’re sitting there and they keep showing Johnny on T.V. and Johnny and I are texting and he shoots me a text and he says, ‘I wish you guys would come get me. Hurry up and draft me because I want to be there. I want to wreck this league together,'” Loggains said.
Loggains said that after he got that text, he sent it to the owner and head coach Mike Pettine. As soon that happened, the Browns pulled the trigger.
