Giants owner says Johnny Manziel doesn’t fit Giants’ profile

Posted · Add Comment

New York Giants owner Steve Tisch has an opinion on Cleveland Browns rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel.

And it's not entirely positive when it comes to the hard-partying former Heisman Trophy winner.

“I would be concerned, but I think if you sort of look at the culture and the history of the Giants, he really doesn’t fit the profile of, historically, of New York Giants football players," Tisch told TMZ. "We have a fantastic quarterback who I hope has another amazing season. I wish Manziel all the best."

Tisch didn't mention Lawrence Taylor's history of cocaine use or other Giants players who have been in trouble with the law.

“If he was playing for anybody out of our division I would hope that he’d be good for them,” Tisch said. “I wouldn’t want him to be good for the Eagles, the Cowboys or the Redskins, but I hope he’s good for Cleveland. I hope he has a good year. I think he knows what he has to do to stay on the team, to work with his teammates, to be part of a very functional, productive locker room. A lot’s going to come out once training camp starts.”
