Johnny Manziel’s lifestyle will continue to be a topic of discussion in the NFL. Manziel’s jersey is already the most sold in the NFL and his popularity continues to grow. The media is going to feast on him and every little move that he does. Head Coach Mike Pettine has to be prepared to talk about every little incident that happens with Manziel, if it is on the field or if it is off. Manziel will give Pettine plenty to talk about.
Earlier in the offseason, a photo of Manziel rolling up a $20 bill surfaced and that sparked up plenty of conversation.

Pettine was asked about the photo and if he had talked to Manziel about it. Here was his response via Bleacher Report:
“I don’t want to get into a (public) discussion of every picture that comes out, but I talked to him about it. We anticipate this will quiet down once the season starts. As committed as Johnny is to football, this stuff should not be an issue once camp gets underway.”
Will the discussion die down during the regular season? As long as Manziel is not seen by the rest of the world, but if he is out partying all the time, the talk will still be there.
