Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel made the big name that he has for himself by basically being a video game character on the field. In his two years at Texas A&M, which included a Heisman campaign in his freshman season of 2012, Manziel made plays in real life that some people only dreamed of doing on their Playstation or XBox.
Well beginning this season with his new NFL status, Manziel literally will be a video game character in this year’s edition of EA Sports’ Madden NFL 15, and here below is the first look at the Aggies product in the game.

Of course, when the game is released later this summer, Manziel should be one of the more popular players to use. With his skill set, his impact on the game should be something along the lines of what Michael Vick was in the early 2000s. If you’re old enough to remember that, when Vick was in Atlanta, he was virtually unstoppable and that’s how Manziel should be as well.
Whether or not Manziel will be the starting quarterback in Cleveland when the season starts remains to be seen, but even if he’s not, most people will more than likely have him starting for the Browns in Madden; no offense to Brian Hoyer.
