Johnny Manziel just cant keep out the media spotlight and this week he didn't exactly do his reputation a favour when he was reportedly fined by the Cleveland Browns.

Every move the 21-year-old will now make in his NFL career will be heavily scrutinised, it is important for the former Texas A&M Aggie to curb his behaviour whilst with his new franchise.

Manziel wasn't the only player to be fined however, he was joined by his fellow rookies when they were all late for work and didn't arrive on time for a team meeting.

Late for work

Chris Mortensen of ESPN reports that Manziel and a group of other rookies were disciplined by the Cleveland Browns management for not showing up to a meeting on Monday morning, not a good way to start the week with your football team.

Mortensen explained to Monday Night Countdown that: "He and a few other rookies misread the schedule and they were, I think, fined for being a couple minutes late on Monday morning,"

It's not all bad news for the most polarising quarterback in the NFL, the Browns have reportedly been very pleased with the way Manziel has conducted himself and his attitude towards work according to Mortensen.

Johnny 'Football' has showed up to the team's facility for voluntary workouts on Sunday when the players weren't required to partake after the Saturday night pre-season opener.

Hoyer starting

The big talking point surrounding the Cleveland organisation at the present time is the decision to withhold Manziel from the starting line-up, with the Browns preferring Brian Hoyer to start in the second pre-season match.

Although Manziel will take some part with the first team offence, the management of the Browns continues to hold the reigns on their rookie quarterback, suggesting they may favour Hoyer come season start.

The game against the Washington Redskins will once again be a good chance to evaluate the quarterback battle currently ensuing in Cleveland, both players have performed admirably thus far and the team may have more of an idea who their week one starter will be after the third pre-season contest.
