This past week you heard that Johnny Manziel may've been in Las Vegas the night before the Browns' season finale, that he no-showed the team the morning of the game (and then didn't answer his phone when they called), and also that he reportedly showed up to practice "inebriated and disheveled" earlier in the week (Note: This was disputed by now former head coach Mike Pettine). Now ESPN Las Vegas is claiming that Manziel attempted to go unrecognized in the Sin City club (reportedly a Planet Hollywood) the same way a cartoon character would, by donning a cheap disguise. From their Facebook page:
Our sources tell us Manziel was at a popular night club on the strip Saturday night. The QB entered wearing a blonde wig, a fake mustache, glasses, and a hoodie.
Manziel introduced himself as “Billy.” He was there into the 3am hour and when it came time to pay the bill, he asked to have it comped because he didn’t bring cash and also didn’t want to put it on his card.
However, the sources tell us he ended up paying with his card and signing the check.
By 3am he appeared to be enjoying the party scene that Vegas is known to offer.
The club had Manziel and his crew placed at a VIP table close to the DJ booth. The table is located in one of the darkest areas of the club.
Manziel dined at the club’s restaurant before going to the nightclub. He was seated at the most private area in the restaurant, which is still out in the open. And yes, he ate with his wig and glasses on."
If this rumor (and for now it's just that) is true we'd say it'd be the nail in the coffin of his playing days with the Browns. But it sounds like they were already moving on anyway.
