If Johnny Manziel had any hope of remaining with the Browns, head coach Hue Jackson slammed the door emphatically shut on that Wednesday morning at the NFL Combine.

Jackson knew the question was coming, and he was armed with an authoritative response beyond standing by the team’s statement a few weeks ago.

“His future on our team will be addressed here pretty soon,” Jackson said referring to March 9th when the new league year begins and the team can release Manziel.

Dallas police are currently investigating a Jan. 30 incident in which Manziel’s ex girlfriend Colleen Crowley alleges that Manziel grabbed her by the hair, drug her into a car and hit her several times rupturing her eardrum.

A Texas judge granted Crowley a protective order against Manziel.

“Obviously there were some people involved in the situation that happened and I feel really bad about those things as they do happen,” Jackson said. “But I want to make sure that we all understand that, that behavior will not be tolerated as we move forward.
