    Cleveland Browns rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel was late for a team meeting, according to ESPN.

    Manziel isn't starting against the Washington Redskins, but that's not because of being late.

    Per the report, Manziel and other rookies misread a schedule and were late as a result.

    Manziel has otherwise been on time for team functions and curfews.

    Someone start a running tab on how many times we hear the "honest mistake" or something similar to that excuse.

    If other rookies also were confused by the schedule, and it's the first meeting he was late for, he should be given a pass.

    TMZ learned that Browns QB Johnny Manziel ordered a popular & delicious new drink from a local Starbucks for pickup on Friday.

    The above mentioned beverage was the
    A distinctive chai blend featuring a bold infusion of cinnamon, ginger, cardamom, & cloves, blended with loose-leaf black tea & rooibos.​

    From sources at the local coffee shop, TMZ learned that while the pickup order was for 3:45, Manziel showed up at 3:55, offering no explanation.​

    When questioned about the alleged tardiness, Cleveland Browns officials said they had no comment citing that these issues are always handled in-house. Further questions on if this would affect the competition for the starting QB position, officials would only say it was a head coaching decision.​

    The quote was taken waaaaaaay out of context, but it makes for good toilet reading.

    He has people intrigued. When the NFLN aired the Browns-Lions game, it was the highest rated preseason game they've had in the 11 years they've showed preseason games.
