Browns felt betrayed by Manziel's bye-week actions

The news regarding Johnny Manziel's benching continues to evolve.

NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported Thursday on NFL GameDay Morning that the team felt betrayed by Manziel's actions.

Per Rapoport, when the Browns confronted Manziel about the video, he was not honest about where and when it came from. That contributed to his benching, per two sources informed of the Browns' thinking.

Mike Pettine said after the demotion that it wasn't the end for Manziel in Cleveland. Where the "betrayed" team goes from here with the their former first-round pick is something that will be closely tracked as we press toward the end of 2015 and into 2016.
