Johnny Manziel is up to a lot of mischief these days. Whether that be a crazy Memorial Day Weekend in Las Vegas with bikini-clad models, or another night away with a playboy model, Manziel has been a busy man.

This week he has again been out and about, but the nature of his activity has been quite different, with Manziel attending Nike's elite, invite-only, high school recruits camp.

Thrown out 

But like another infamous Johnny Manziel football camp visit, the Cleveland Browns quarterback was again thrown out. During college, Manziel went to the Peyton Manning camp until he was eventually told to leave because he slept in.

However, on this occasion, Johnny Manziel was certainly the victim. Unlike the acrimonious end to his previous visit to a football camp, Manziel was not at fault for this.


It's not often that the Browns QB goes unnoticed, but that's exactly what let him down this week. A security guard at the Nike camp told him to leave because he didn't know who he was, according to reports.

According to NFL insider Jamie Oakes, "To Manziel's credit, he didn't bat an eye and walked off as requested. He was denied access more than being asked to leave."

This is quite an embarrassing situation for any person to be in. Being denied entry is something that naturally would annoy even the calmest person in the world. But despite Manziel's portrayed demeanour these days, he was cool, calm and collected about the situation.

Rather than overreact and get mad, Manziel is understood to have just simply left under the orders of the guards, according to reports.

Manziel was drafted in the 2014 NFL Draft with the 22nd overall pick by the Cleveland Browns. He was helping out at Nike's The Opening as a guest counsellor.

This type of story about Johnny Manziel is likely to raise some eyebrows yet again regarding the signal caller's ability to hack it in the NFL, but in this instance the man did absolutely nothing wrong.

This may well be the last time that Manziel is not recognized in public.
