Cleveland Browns, Chicago Bears skip Johnny Manziel's pro day at Texas A&M

Johnny Manziel put on a show Thursday morning during his personal pro day.

The Bears' absence is not a huge surprise considering their confidence in current quarterback Jay Cutler, but it is notable that the quarterback-needy Browns decided to skip out on the pro day.

However, don't let the Browns' absence lead you to believe they have no interest in the Texas A&M star. Cleveland is expected to put Manziel through a workout and hold a private meeting with him at some point before the draft.
