ESPN cameras love to follow Johnny Manziel all over the field, but maybe he just taught them a lesson that they need to give him a little space.

Manziel was caught flipping the bird at the Redskins bench after throwing an incomplete pass on second down during the third quarter of Monday’s preseason game between the Browns and Skins.

We have no idea if anything prompted the gesture — was there some crap talking? some dirty play? We have no idea. But we do know this kid is brazen and doesn’t give a crap. Here’s what he said about it:

“I get words exchanged with me throughout the entirety of the game, game after game … I need to be smarter than that.”

His coach Mike Pettine didn’t like the gesture.

“That does not sit well … it’s disappointing,” said Pettine.

When you hear later this week that Manziel has been fined for a gesture, you’ll know why.

The Washington Redskins got a sack on Johnny Manziel in the first quarter of Monday’s preseason game against the Cleveland Browns, and one of their players decided to mock Manziel.

Ryan Kerrigan sacked Johnny Football on the backup quarterback’s first drive of the game. Brian Orakpo decided to act appropriately.

This isn’t the first time we’ve seen something like this. When JJ Watt sacked Aaron Rodgers, he mocked him with the Discount Double Check belt celebration.

If quarterbacks are going to have signature celebrations, they better be prepared to have defenders throw it back in their face when they screw up or get sacked.

Here’s what Johnny looks like when he does his hand gesture:

Stephen Jones supposedly had to physically restrain Jerry Jones from turning in draft card for Johnny Manziel

We already knew that Jerry Jones was extremely close to drafting Johnny Manziel No. 16 overall in the NFL draft before deciding on Notre Dame offensive lineman Zack Martin, but a new story says Jones’ desire to select the former Heisman Trophy winner was on a whole other level.

Jim Dent wrote a new book called “Manziel Mania” in which he says Jerry had to be restrained by son Stephen Jones from turning in the draft card for Manziel.

Here’s what Dent writes:

“I could just see Jones grabbing Manziel with the 16th choice of the first round. I wrote a book about Jerry Jones in 1995 titled ‘King of the Cowboys.’ I know the Boss Hog. I knew that Jones’ hands were shaking when the Cowboys went on the clock with Manziel still on the board. I could envision Jones scribbling the name of Johnny Manziel on the draft card. Indeed, all of these things happened.

“As it turned out, Cowboys vice president Stephen Jones had snatched the Manziel card straight out of his dad’s hand. Otherwise, Jerry would have drafted him and JFF would have sat for at least three years behind Tony Romo.”

This should not come as a surprise to anyone. Last month, Jerruh said in an interview with NFL Network that he was extremely close to picking Manziel.

“I want you to know almost as I was handing in the card it was that close to putting the Manziel card in,” Jones told Rich Eisen and Michael Irvin.

Despite Jones’ admission he almost drafted Manziel and this story, the Dallas Morning News says it’s inaccurate to say Stephen had to “snatch” the draft card out of Jerry’s hand.

This whole thing is so silly now. Jerry has admitted to the world a few times now that he really wanted Manziel and thinks JFF will be a star. Now I’m thinking that Jerry wanted to draft Manziel so they could party together.

Jim Brown on Johnny Manziel: ‘I’m an ex-player, we used to party’

Jim-Brown-does-not-like-Trent-RichardsonCleveland Browns legend Jim Brown is a fan of Johnny Manziel. On Friday, Brown spoke about his appreciation for Manziel’s winning ways. The 78-year-old also admitted that he can relate to the whole partying thing.

“I like Johnny, you know, I like his type,” Brown said during an interview with ESPN Cleveland’s The Really Big Show on Friday. “Johnny is a champion, Johnny won games in college. He won the Heisman Trophy as a freshman, didn’t he? … That’s pretty bold. Not bad. You got to have something going on to do that.

“You’ve got to remember, I’m an ex-player. We used to party. Let’s get real, man, we chase girls.”

Brown noted that he does not condone drug and alcohol abuse, but it was clear that he can relate to Manziel on some level. I doubt Brown would have been caught rolling up a $20 bill in front of a sink even if there were camera phones in his day, but we get the point.

A lot of people feel the same way Brown does about Manziel’s party boy antics. The ironic thing is that Brown hinted last summer that he thought some of the Browns players were partying too much, which was leading to a lack of commitment on the field. Plus, Manziel and some other rookies were fined for being late to a team meeting earlier this week.

For the most part, I agree with Brown. Kids in their 20s party and there’s no need to overreact. On the other hand, there have been situations where Manziel hasn’t used his best judgment. He’s constantly under a microscope. Learning to adjust to that wouldn’t hurt.

Johnny Manziel reportedly was late to team meeting, fined

Johnny Manziel

Johnny Manziel and a few other rookies got in a little trouble earlier this week when they were late to a meeting, according to a report.

Chris Mortensen said on ESPN’s “Monday Night Countdown” Thursday that Manziel was late to a meeting Monday morning. Mort believed Manziel and the other rookies misread the schedule. He also says Manziel was fined.

Even though Manziel was reportedly late to a meeting, the team overall supposedly has been happy with the rookie quarterback’s work ethic thus far. The issue also supposedly had no bearing on head coach Mike Pettine’s decision to start Brian Hoyer in the team’s second preseason game.

Manziel reportedly has closed the gap with Hoyer in the starting quarterback race. ESPN’s Adam Schefter says Hoyer will get the nod as the team’s starter if the two end up in a tie. They have a few more preseason games left to sort out matters.

Are Johnny Manziel and girlfriend Colleen Crowley official?

Colleen-Crowley-Johnny-Manziel

Is Johnny Manziel a one-woman man? Judging by some of the stuff we have seen on social media lately, it is starting to look that way.

As LB pointed out a little while back, Manziel has been spending a lot of time with a young lady named Colleen Crowley. Some of you may be familiar with Colleen’s sister Robyn, who dates NBA star Chandler Parsons. Colleen, Robyn and a couple of other very attractive young ladies attended a Boston Red Sox game with Manziel about a month ago.

On Sunday, Crowley posted the above photo on Instagram of her making a kissy face at a projection screen where one of Manziel’s interviews was being shown. Manziel responded by sharing the same photo and captioning it “Mine.”

There was also this classic couples picture that Crowley posted last week for “Man Crush Monday.”
