If there is one thing Johnny Manziel is known for, it’s his ability to rage better than anyone. Sure, he’s a pretty solid football player, but his partying? Man, his party skills are unfathomably amazing.
This isn’t new news. Since his days at Texas A&M, the media has put him through the ringer. His every move has been scrutinized by reporters from across the country, so why are the Browns all of a sudden “alarmed” by his behavior?
The Browns have been ‘alarmed’ by some of Johnny Manziel’s antics since the draft — especially a photo of him rolling up a $20 bill in the bathroom of a bar — and some in the organization feel he’s lost ground in the quarterback competition heading into camp, sources have told Northeast Ohio Media Group.
After the suspicious photo of Manziel tightly rolling up the bill surfaced on July 7, Browns coach Mike Pettine called Manziel from his vacation in Hawaii and addressed it, he told NEOMG on Monday. The conversation was ‘positive’ but he also planned to talk to Manziel face-to-face when he arrived for the rookie portion of camp on Wednesday.
So what if he rolled up some cash? He just wanted to enjoy his wealth from a different perspective. Big fuckin’ deal.
Team officials had bought into Manziel’s pre-draft promises to tone down the partying and leave his frat-boy lifestyle back in College Station, Texas, and they’ve been stunned by his non-stop antics, sources said.
If anything, it sounds as if the front office is jealous. Those people are jealous that they have no control over a 21-year-old who has more dough in his bank accounts than they’ll ever see.
There’s nothing wrong with having a little fun, Johnny. Ignore the old farts–the only excitement they get nowadays is catching a peek of a cheerleader’s cleavage on game days.
