According to Smith, Manziel used to go “out of his way” to help special needs kids in Kerrville, which is one reason why he’s surprised by recent events.
“‘Your actions speak so loud I can’t hear a word you’re saying.’ That was something we shared with our kids a lot in Kerrville,” Smith said. “And that’s one of the things I talked with him when he was in rehab. Right now, his actions are a little bit different than what he said he was going to do.”
The Browns released Manziel earlier this offseason. So did two agents. Manziel’s NFL future — along with this future outside of football — remains cloudy. And his recent Tweeting spree did nothing to help his case.
According to TMZ, Manziel rebounded from his court appearance in Texas by visiting three Hollywood clubs on Friday night.
If Panthers general manager Dave Gettleman was in charge of making the NFL schedule, it doesn’t sound like he’d have put his team in the regular-season opener.
Since 2002, the NFL has kicked off each season with a Thursday night opener. Since 2004, that game has been hosted by the defending Super Bowl champion.
For the 2016 version of the NFL’s regular-season opener, the Panthers will be traveling to Denver for a Super Bowl 50 rematch against the Broncos.
Konnor Vanatta says the Broncos new quarterback is his hero.
His mother Pam said he’s been a fan of Manning since he was 4 and that his grandmother got him the orange jersey.
“It was absurd to me. I was shocked,” Pam Vanatta said. “I was speechless.”
The school, Monfort Elementary School, told Vanatta the number 18 was affiliated with a gang in Los Angeles, and that there are several numbers they ban in school. Greeley police told CBS4 they have run into local gangs using the number, among other numbers. They said they support the school district’s actions.
White is 6-foot-3 and 215 pounds and ran the 40-yard dash in 4.35 seconds at the NFL combine. Johnson, meanwhile, is 6-2, 230 and ran his 40 in 4.41 seconds when he was coming out of The U. So the size and speed combination, yeah, that’s there. Other athletic indicators are pretty close, too
So, a big, fast, athletic receiver like Andre Johnson. That’s a start. But (Curtis) Johnson wasn’t done showering praise on White.
“[White] has hands similar to Reggie Wayne,” Johnson said. “So he was one of those guys where when you looked at the draft and watched television, you say this guy is going to be a bona fide player.”
