Report: Browns beat Vikings to trade up for Johnny Manziel

Posted by: Master Tesfatsion under Vikings Updated: May 8, 2014 - 9:58 PM

Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel is finally the board. He went to the Browns with the 22nd overall pick.

Here's the kicker, the Browns reportedly gave the Eagles a better offer than the Vikings to trade up for Johnny Football.

I'm sure that'll make you sleep better at night, Manziel fans.

What can we take away from this though? Vikings are clearly looking to trade back in the first round. Louisville quarterback Teddy Bridgewater and Fresno State quarterback Derek Carr are still available.

But no Johnny Football in Minnesota.
