During Thursday night's Monday Night Football telecast, ESPN reported Johnny Manziel and other Browns rookies were late to a team meeting and fined as a result of their tardiness. Manziel admitted his mistake during a media session on Saturday and said he "misread the schedule." "I personally don't think it had any decision on going into this week,'' he said. "I misread the schedule on Monday. I think we had to come in at 7:30 and I think it was the only day that we've had to come in at that time throughout camp and I was on time for what I thought was our normal 8:15 meeting time, so it was just a misinterpretation, a misreading of the schedule. I sat down with coach Pettine and I talked to him and we handled it and we've moved on. "Obviously it's something [where] I just need to do a better job of reading the schedule the night before but it was an honest mistake and something I need to learn from and make sure it doesn't happen again." Did the dog eat his schedule, too? Just kidding. I do stuff like that all the time. So does everyone else.
