Bad news, Browns: Johnny Manziel parties with Floyd Mayweather Jr. and Justin Bieber

The Cleveland Browns may have told rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel to tone down his Johnny Partydude routine, but a guy’s gotta do what a guy’s gotta do, especially when he’s on vacation.

For Johnny Football, that means heading to Los Angeles to film his first commercial as a pro and then partying at the home of Justin Bieber with Floyd Mayweather Jr., Tyga and Tyrese Gibson to such an extent that police were summoned, TMZ reports.

Naturally, almost everyone involved shared images of the evening’s revelry on social media.

The photos are fairly harmless, but they aren’t likely to thrill the Browns, coming so closely on the heels of the team’s message to him and his vow that he wasn’t “going to change who I am for anybody. I’m growing up and continuing to learn from my mistakes and trying not to make the same ones over and over again, but am I going to live in a shell or am I just going to hide from everybody and not do anything? I don’t think that’s the way I should live my life and I’m not going to do it. I’m here, I’m very committed to football. I’m committed to my job, but on the weekends, I’m going to enjoy my time off.

“We deserve it. We work hard here. We’ve worked hard since the draft. We worked hard to get drafted and put ourselves in a good position at the [scouting] combine, even after that, working to stay in shape. I am going to enjoy my time off. I’m very about football and very about my job, which doesn’t get reported or won’t get reported, but I am going to enjoy my time off. That’s I think what everybody else does and that’s what I should do.”

After spending most of her career in traditional print sports journalism, Cindy began blogging and tweeting, first as NFL/Redskins editor, and, since August 2010, at The Early Lead. She also is the social media editor for Sports.
