Johnny Manziel is retiring the money sign


St. Louis Rams v Cleveland Browns



He’s no longer Money Manziel.

Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel said today that he’s done with the money sign, which had been his trademark celebration since his days as a Heisman Trophy winner at Texas A&M.

“The money sign will not be back. I will not be making it,” Manziel said.

That’s because Manziel thinks it’s time for him to grow up and move on from a rough rookie season that saw him struggle on the field and end up in alcohol rehab.

“Last year is last year, it was what it was and it was not very good,” Manziel said. “So for me, I’m trying to close that chapter and just build on what I’ve done so far this year and just move forward, and try to close that chapter in my life. Not one that I’m very proud of, not one that I want to look back on very much and dwell on, that’s for sure.”

The Browns want Manziel to grow up. His comments today indicate that he has.
