Yes you read that title right....... and NO this is not a piece by The Onion

When draft day draws near, each NFL team will go into their war room, and a team of advisors will chose who gets the pick for their team. But what if I told you that the Browns employed a totally different strategy? Yep thats right, a homeless man is responsible for the Johnny Football joy in Cleveland.

"I can go out to dinner anywhere in Tennessee and nobody bothers me." That's his home state. But he said, "Here in Cleveland, everywhere I go, people know me. And I was out to dinner recently. And a homeless person was out on the street, looked up at me and said, 'Draft Manziel.' Just like that."

Yes that right there was a quote from the Brown's owner about how he was convinced to get Manziel obtained by deadspin.com. Forget the hundreds of man hours, forget the war rooms and the analysts, forget everything you know about football. No when it comes to the draft, get your nearest homeless guy, and give him a chance!

On a positive note, Cleveland fans were overjoyed to get Manziel, and the team has sold over 1,500 new season tickets since the announcement last night with that number expected to climb steadily. Things could get REALLY fun in Cleveland this year, definitely worth watching.
