It appears that the Browns got the last laugh on the first night of the draft.
Here's the earth-shattering tweet from Jay Glazer:
Vikings thought they had a deal w eagles and browns came w better offer— Jay Glazer (@JayGlazer) May 9, 2014
It looks like the Vikings were poised to make a deal with the Philadelphia Eagles for the #22 pick and select Johnny Manziel with that pick. But the Browns pulled a page from the movie Draft Day and got their guy at the last second by coming in with a better offer.
Depending on where you come down on your opinion of Johnny Football, this is either more devastating news or another bullet dodged. Either way, the Vikings had a shot at Manziel earlier in the night and passed, and Cleveland now has their most exciting athlete since LeBron James left town. The Vikings still need to add a quarterback sometime in this draft, and the pool just shrunk by one.
