Manziel threw his first pro touchdown pass since December of 2015 (vs. the Seattle Seahawks in a 30-13 loss for the Browns), scrambling to his right to find receiver Antwan Goodley, who dove to complete the touchdown play.

Earlier, Manziel rolled out to connect on a long pass play to Goodley, who appears to have emerged as Manziel's go-to target.

Manziel also pulled off a quarterback keeper for a short gain.

Manziel recently participated in the pro days of the University of San Diego and Texas A&M. With his sights set on an NFL return, Manziel expressed interest in playing in the CFL as a possible pathway back.
