Post evada seems like the more lofty goal at this p
CLEVELAND -- Johnny Manziel is back at work after a holiday weekend in Las Vegas. And when youre Johnny Football, what happens in Vegas doesnt necessarily stay in Vegas. The Browns celebrated rookie quarterback reported for organized team activities Tuesday following a few days in Vegas, where he kicked off his summer by hanging poolside with New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski, attended a UFC fight and was captured on video spraying champagne on patrons in a nightclub. And, according to Manziel, he found time to study his new playbook. Following his first practices with Clevelands veterans last week, Manziel took advantage of a break in the workouts to head to Las Vegas. On Saturday, a photo of him and Gronkowski, surrounded by other partiers, appeared on several social media sites. Later, Manziel posted a photo on his Twitter account of him standing with UFC President Dana White along with a thank-you note. Although this was all done on his free time, and Manziel didnt commit a crime or have any known issues, his actions raised eyebrows in some circles about his commitment to playing in the NFL. He seemed to fire back at any criticism by posting a photo on his Instagram account Monday night of his Browns playbook and iPad with the caption: "Guess its impossible to enjoy the weekend and study?" Manziel, who was selected with the No. 22 overall pick by the Browns after sliding in the first round, is expected to challenge Brian Hoyer for the starting job. Last week, first-year Browns coach Mike Pettine said Manziel was having typical problems for a young player. "Its like any other rookie, that hes just inconsistent," Pettine said. "I think a lot of its the mental part of it. Hes more worried about getting the formation right, making sure the motion is correct, and hes got the cadence. Then, hes got to worry about where guys are. Being good mechanically takes a back seat to learning the system first. I think you see over the maturation process, once all that stuff becomes second nature, that hell be a lot more comfortable." Manziel has made a favourable impression with the Browns in his first weeks as a pro. Hes said all the right things during two media availabilities, echoing the teams stance that hes only a backup and will have to earn his starting job. Pettine also said Manziel has shown humility, fitting in nicely with some teammate who may have expected Johnny Football to act differently. "Hes quiet actually," Pettine said. "Hes a good guy to be around. I think the guys in the locker room will be able to tell you that hes a fun guy. But you can tell, when its time to work he works, and hes very serious about this. You can tell hes very competitive." Clevelands practice Wednesday is open to the media.

Marcus Gilchrist Jersey .com) - Damian Lillard poured in 40 points on 11-of-21 shooting to go along with 11 assists, and the Portland Trail Blazers stunned the Oklahoma City Thunder, 115-111, in overtime on Tuesday.Vitor Belforts journey back to the octagon could go through Brazil, but only if he his completely off testosterone replacement therapy and only if the UFC wants to book him there. "He can fight here, no problem, but he cant use TRT," medical director of the Brazilian MMA Athletic Commission (CABMMA), Dr. Marcio Tannure, told MMAFighting.com. "Since he doesnt have a license to use TRT anymore, he would be tested like any other fighter." Belfort was forced to pull out of a middleweight title bout against Chris Weidman, originally scheduled for UFC 173 on May 24 in Las Vegas, due to a Nevada State Athletic Commission on TRT. Lyoto Machida was awarded the vacant title shot, Weidman opted to undergo minor knee surgery and the event has been pushed to UFC 175 in July - also in Las Vegas. Since then, Belfort says he is TRT free - he claims he passed a self-administered test - and at one point even asked for his title shot back. "Hes got a lot of work to do," White said at the end of April, as quoted by MMAJunkie.com. "That (expletive) doesnt just happen like that. Youve got to get on the agenda – hes got a lot of work to do." "Hes got to solve his problems with the Nevada State Athletic Commission, and when he does that, we can figure it out.dddddddddddd" Nevada seems like the more lofty goal at this point. In March, FOX Sports reported Belfort may need to reveal the results of a NSAC surprise drug test at the World MMA Awards in February. However, the Brazilian athletic commission would not likely request those results. "Every commission has its standards," Dr. Tannure said. "I dont know which test he did and what was the result, so I cant talk about it and which criteria theyre considering in (Belforts) case." "Every time a fighter that tested positive in the past applies for a license in Nevada is tested again, and we will adopt that here as well," he continued. "This is an interesting criteria, and we will also do it, but (Belfort) never tested positive here." For Belfort, who is expected to get his title shot against the winner of Weidman-Machida, a license to fight anywhere seems like a victory. "As far as license with the (CABMMA), he would be able to fight no problem," Dr. Tannure said. "He would be tested like any other fighter. If he failed any test, he would be suspended like any other regular fighter."
