Quinn On Manziel Video: “I Have A Little Bit Of An Issue With It”

2014 Cleveland Browns OTA Practice

Former Browns QB Brady Quinn is speaking out about current Browns QB Johnny Manziel, and more so about the partying that is very publicized about Manziel off the field.

Today on Sirius XM NFL Radio, Quinn talked about the latest video on Manziel on Instagram showing what looks to be the QB drunk.

“There’s a little kid watching that, and now he’s looking up to him as a role model,” Quinn said. “”For me personally, I have a little bit of an issue with it. I don’t think thats the way you want to conduct yourself.”

There’s been plenty of people critical of the amount of exposure that Manziel is getting, and Quinn wasn’t afraid to say that he thinks Manziel should be toning it down before camp.

“If you were asking Jimmy Haslam `is that really what you want the face of your franchise doing, and having out there?,” Quinn said. “I just dont think its right. I don’t think its respectful to the other vet players too, who are preparing for a winning season.”

Quinn himself had to put up with the pressure of being a first-round draft pick of the Browns a few years back. While he wasn’t a success overall on the field, he didn’t draw the off the field attention that Manziel has gotten.

“I revert back to Russell Wilson. You see all the time his good works, on camera, on twitter, a hospital with sick kids,” Quinn said. “That’s the kind of role model [Russell Wilson] I’d want for my franchise.”
