(NEW YORK) –Cleveland Browns rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel was fined $12,000 by the NFL for making an obscene gesture toward the Washington Redskins sideline during a preseason game Monday night, according to ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
According to ESPN’s Ed Werder, Manziel’s agent Erik Burkhardt says the rookie hasn’t decided whether to appeal the fine.
The 21-year-old Manziel, who was recently beat out by teammate Brian Hoyer for the starting quarterback job, was selected with the 22nd overall pick in this year’s draft.
