A USA TODAY Sports report Saturday night placed Manziel in Las Vegas, dining and gambling at Planet Hollywood's restaurant and casino.

Unfortunatlely for him, the club did not permit this to happen and Manziel used his credit card to pay, signing the name on the card.

Haslam told the media that the Browns hadn't made a decision on Manziel's future with the team, but that it would be up to the coaches to decide.

Manziel hasn't publicly acknowledged the rumors of him partying the night away before a game, but his time in Cleveland appears to be coming to a rapid end. Browns owner Jimmy Haslam confirmed Sunday night that Manziel was not at the team's facility in Berea, Ohio, on Sunday.

LeBron James expressed concern for embattled Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel when asked about the former Texas A&M star before the Cleveland Cavaliers' morning shootaround Wednesday. But the details of that trip - specifically the supposed lengths Manziel was willing to go to remain incognito - are a bit surreal.

Manziel had been downgraded to out in the days before Sunday's game due to a concussion suffered the week before against the Kansas City Chiefs.

"We want to get the right person", Haslam said.

While his teammates ended a 3-13 season, which was followed by the firings of coach Mike Pettine and GM Ray Farmer, Manziel was not at FirstEnergy Stadium as the Steelers beat the Browns 28-12. Yet on Sunday, Pettine denied a WKNR (850-AM) radio report that Manziel showed up for work on Tuesday "inebriated and disheveled", saying, "No. No. No, that is not the case". "They'll make those calls", Haslam said.

Manziel did post something on Instagram that indicated he was in OH that night, but the theories are he simply used geotagging to fake it. "I feel like we've done a lot of good things, but I'm the first one to tell you - you've heard me say it a million times - this is a pass/fail league, and the results aren't there".
