Johnny Manziel hasn't exactly had the smoothest of careers in the NFL.

The former Texas A&M superstar and Heisman award winner had a shocker of a rookie year, losing a very winnable starting quarterback battle to Brian Hoyer, then going on to end the year in a rehab facility for substance abuse issues.

Manziel's second season didn't go that much better. He did become the starter for a few games but ended the season with a concussion - and decided to go to Vegas instead of spending it with the team and getting his treatment from medical staff. Well, Manziel has now been punished for that latest transgression.

According to Mary Kay Cabot, the Browns Executive VP of Football Operations Sashi Brown told the media on Thursday the team had fined the quarterback for missing that scheduled treatment.

Brown said the team still plans to sit down with Manziel before determining the signal caller's future. "We're not in a panic to make a decision one way or another on him," he said.

"We set expectations for our team on and off field," Brown went on to add. "Johnny owns a lot of this in terms of the future of his career."

Ian Rapoport previously reported that new coach Hue Jackson is expected to part ways with the enigmatic quarterback. At his introductory press conference, Jackson echoed the team's stance that they want to meet with Manziel before making any decisions.

Johnny Manziel's career is going to waste and it's an absolute shame. But all in all, he only has himself to blame.
