Ray Farmer: Browns can’t suspend Johnny Manziel
The Cleveland Browns would have violated NFL rules if they had suspended quarterback Johnny Manziel over the incident with his girlfriend, according to general manager Ray Farmer.
The NFL alone has the authority to discipline a player for any potential personal conduct policy violations, leaving the Browns with just one option – to make Manziel inactive on game day. The Browns chose not to do that while the league handles its investigation of the Oct. 12 incident between Manziel and his girlfried, Colleen Crowley.
Farmer’s comments came on Tuesday when he was a speaker at a luncheon fundraiser for the Cleveland area Domestic Violence & Child Advocacy Center, according to ESPN. In addition to releasing a short official statement following the incident, Farmer said he met privately with the second-year quarterback.
