Troublesome quarterback Johnny Manziel (man-ZEHL') may be on his way out in Cleveland.

The team issued a strong statement Tuesday, condemning Manziel's actions and pointing to the club releasing him in March.

Manziel's off-the-field issues have been a problem almost from the day Cleveland drafted the Heisman Trophy winner in the first round in 2014. Last weekend, he was involved in a disturbance with his ex-girlfriend in Dallas that is being investigated by police and the NFL.

The Browns can release Manziel as early as Monday. But salary-cap implications point to the move happening March 9, when the league's new year begins.
