He has taken the NFL by storm ever since being drafted by the Cleveland Browns, but in light of a recent big performance, has Johnny Manziel shed his nickname?

He's been known as Johnny Football for a long time now but after his former college team's impressive victory and newest hero has seemingly risen, Manziel may have learnt to share.

His antics have been infamous and become somewhat of a trademark of his but while he has been making headlines off the field, he has been struggling on it.

Manziel has lost his seemingly lost his battle to win the starting spot for the Browns in the upcoming season to team-mate Brian Hoyer.

But in the space of the few months since he joined the Browns, we have seen the Manziel we know and a few moments of a seemingly new Manziel.

But following Texas A&M's victory on Thursday night, Manziel may have shown his biggest personality switch so far.

Manziel's reaction

Following a record breaking performance from Manziel's successor Kenny Hill who took up the starting Quarterback role for the Aggies, Manziel was full of praise.

Manziel tweeted a fairly interesting tweet as he looked to share his nickname with the Aggies new superstar.

Calling him "Kenny football", Manziel even began a press conference by proclaiming his successor's new title.

But when asked about the nickname himself, Hill said: "I don't really like 'Kenny Football',"  

Manziel can share?

New Texas A&M starting Quarterback Kenny Hill earned many plaudits after his performance in the Aggies first game against the South Carolina Gamecocks.

Hill put in a record breaking performance on Thursday as he beat Manziel's own single game passing record by passing for a phenomenal 511 yards.

His high passing yardage came with three touchdown passes as the Aggies cruised to a 52-28 victory.

It was record breaking for more than once reason however as it ended South Carolina's 18 game unbeaten home streak.

Manziel may be finding life in the NFL to be more difficult than his college days but the former Heisman trophy winner is clearly keeping a close eye on his Quarterback competition for the future.
