Mike Evans says Johnny Manziel won't party during training camp

Johnny Manziel’s first month with the Browns has been overshadowed by his off-the-field antics. Whether it’s spraying champagne in Vegas or riding inflatable swans while sipping the bubbly, the rookie quarterback’s decision making has come into question.
“In training camp, I don’t think he’ll go out at all,” Buccaneers rookie wide receiver said, via Mary Kay Cabot of the Cleveland Plain Dealer. “He’ll be committed and devoted and fighting for a starting job.”
Evans, who played with Manziel at Texas A&M for two seasons, developed a strong bond and wishes people wouldn’t judge him so irrationally.
“He’s a great guy,” Evans said. “He practiced hard. He came to work. He’s one of my best friends. So I wouldn’t trade him for anybody. I think he’ll be a great pro. He’s a great guy. He’s a better guy than most people give him credit for.
“It’s just he’s under a bigger microscope than everybody. Being a Heisman Trophy winner and coming out of college, he’s just under a bigger microscope. Everybody does it. When he gets on the field, all of that will go to rest.”
