For someone who is trying to keep a low profile, Johnny Manziel has a hell of a knack for making the headlines.

The Cleveland Browns quarterback is back in the news, this time for sticking his middle finger up to the Washington Redskins bench last night.

The rookie QB was subject to a barrage of comments from Washington players all night and finally snapped in the 3rd quarter with his side down 14-3.

Browns coach Mike Pettine, who is yet to decide on his starting quarterback, was disappointed in Manziel and told him that he has to maintain his pose.

Redskins players were loving it however. Brian Orakpo was one of Johnny Football’s mockers and said the whole bench were laughing on the sidelines following Manziel’s petulant display.

The kid definitely has a lot to learn.

Oh, the fine for flipping the bird in an NFL game? Just a cool 11 thousand dollars.
