Jerry Jones Can’t Disguise His Lust For Johnny Manziel … I Mean, Billy Vegas
Not since Ron Mexico (aka Michael Vick) tried to keep his medical charts safe from public scrutiny has there been a snappier alias for a pro quarterback. As you may have heard by now, Johnny Manziel allegedly tried to hide a Las Vegas gambling and drinking binge this past Saturday by donning a blond wig and fake mustache and calling himself "Billy".
Are the reports true? The real answer is shrouded in mystery. What we know for sure is that this epic shirt has been produced, and really that's enough.

So the Browns are almost certainly done with Manziel, but rumors persist that Manziel wants to go to the Cowboys, and that Jerry Jones, who really wanted Manziel in the draft, would be receptive to that.
Here's Jones, possibly indirectly saying he would take Manziel. CBS Dallas-FW:
“Our backup quarterback situation is the best ‘now’ move we could make,” Jones told 105.3 The Fan’s Shan & RJ. When indirectly asked about those possibilities Jones said, “To bet on [Kellen] Moore for our backup quarterback has elements of risk to it. But I’m not so sure that is any riskier than anything you would do with a decision in the future.
“On the other hand, what would enhance me taking risk would be a bigger upside. If that upside is there, the old risk vs reward situation – then yeah” said Jones.
But back to Billy Vegas. It was also reported that he showed up "disheveled" and with a possible hangover at the Browns' facility the next day. He had a concussion protocol appointment on Sunday at 9:30 a.m., but didn't show up.
I can confirm with 100% certainty that Manziel was in Vegas raging with a blonde wig on. This is no BS. The video will be out soon #Browns
