Joe Thomas Can See ‘Night and Day’ Difference in Manziel


Joe Thomas sees a transformation in quarterback Johnny Manziel.

In an exclusive interview with NFL Media’s Andrea Kremer, Cleveland’s Pro Bowl left tackle heaped praise on Johnny after saying earlier this month that the Browns passer “lost probably a lot of trust” among teammates with the way he handled himself as a rookie.

“The way he is now is night and day from last year,” Thomas said Tuesday. “He has a bright future ahead of him.”

Thomas quipped that Manziel, recently released from treatment, now spends his Saturdays studying the playbook and watching film instead of riding “a swan in a swimming pool drinking champagne,” saying: “It’s apparent he’s realized how important football is to him. He’s realized you can’t get away with those things anymore.”
