Joe Haden tells Johnny Manziel to 'check his friends'


Everyone has an opinion on Cleveland Browns quarterback, from fans, to pundits, to even his teammates. When it comes to his teammates their words carry a bit more weight having gone through the professional athlete transition, something that arguably started before he was a pro.

Browns cornerback Joe Haden thinks Manziel’s biggest concern might be his friends, and he has a suggestion for how Manziel can control them.

“I just really think Johnny needs to maybe check his friends a little bit,” Haden told WKNR-AM on Friday, via GatorBait.net. “Everybody’s going to go out, everybody’s going to have a good time. But you’ve got to make sure when you’re with your people it just doesn’t get out.

“You need to have a phone valet. Tell your friends ‘put your phones away.’ We’re going to go out and have a good time and just don’t record what you’re doing.”

It probably is a smart idea if you’re in the safety of your own home or something, the problem is that when you’re out at a club it isn’t the friends that are the concern so much as the rest of the club with their camera phones. You can’t get an entire club to turn over the cellphones.
