May 9, 2014

After an agonizing two-hour, 45-minute wait in the green room, Johnny Manziel is now a Cleveland Brown. And apparently he’s got a homeless guy to thank for his new gig.Manziel’s fall through the ranks was one of the early stories of the draft, and once he was picked, ESPN cut to Sal Paolantonio in Cleveland with one heck of a strange story. According to Paolantonio, Browns owner Jimmy Haslam received guidance from an unlikely source. “Here in Cleveland, everywhere I go, people know me,” Haslam told Paolantonio. “I was out to dinner recently. A homeless person was out on the street. He looked up at me and said, ‘Draft Manziel.'”

Browns owner selects Johnny Manziel based on homeless guys advice, Mel Kiper shows true emotion.



Nate Fitch The New Turtle, Because A Lifestyle Is A Terrible Thing To Waste

August 9, 2013

Nate Fitch is a friend of Johnny Manziel’s dating back to their high school days, and he also serves as the Heisman-winner’s personal assistant. He might be the man who set up the autograph sessions for which Manziel was allegedly paid, if what sources told ESPN’s Wright Thompson is accurate:
A half dozen sources and counting have said that, among other things, Fitch helped run a Manziel autograph business, setting up signings, handling logistics. Fitch has been a central figure in Manziel’s life for a while now, and as Thompson points out, there is plenty of photographic evidence of that.

Nate Fitch believes a lifestyle is a terrible thing to waste.
