On Saturday, ESPN revealed an eye-opening segment coming on Sunday NFL Countdown in Week 4. It will feature former Cleveland Browns quarterback and Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel writing a letter to Baker Mayfield ahead of his first start.
Here’s a look at a teaser of it, with Manziel offering a few words for the new Browns signal caller, per NFL on ESPN.
It’s an interesting concept, and during the preview, Manziel states “if there’s one thing you already know – one thing everybody already knows, you and I are not the same person.”
What Will Johnny Manziel’s Letter Say?
Manziel, who currently plays in the Canadian Football League, has made it known that he’s focused on turning his life around and locking in on football. When the comparisons of Manziel and Mayfield began, Manziel issued some advice to the rookie quarterback, as Cleveland.com’s Mary Kay Cabot revealed.
“Baker’s got the fire, Baker’s got the spark, and you know, I think he’ll do all right,” said Manziel. “But don’t let the pressure of everything else that goes on get to you. That would be my one advice: just go out and make football the main thing and go out and play like he’s done for the last five years.”
