my home team

The one part I noted is when Kent talked about part of the due dillegence the team did in vetting Manziel was what he was like in the locker rooms in college and Cleveland and what they found was very different from what many posters here have surmised.

He was 'outstanding in that regard', 'didn't have an attitude;  'a willingness to earn anything he gets (regardlesss of what you heard in these negotiations').

(If you listen from the 6:30 mark on is when Austin makes those comments.)
Seems a different picture is offered in Wikipedia...

"Manziel's work ethic and commitment were questioned by over 20 sources within the Cleveland Browns. An anonymous player even called Manziel's rookie season a "100 percent joke." Others within the organization were hopeful about Manziel's future, including cornerback Joe Haden."

"Manziel was announced as the starting quarterback for the rest of the season on November 17.[69] However, Manziel was demoted to third-string quarterback behind McCown and Austin Davis a week later after videos surfaced of him partying in Texas over the bye week.[70] As a result, Manziel remained benched in favor of Davis when McCown suffered a season-ending collarbone injury in the subsequent game against the Baltimore Ravens"
