Browns rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel has no intention of toning down his weekends.

Appearing at a PLAY 60 event with other AFC rookies, Manziel says he’s been bothered by recent comments about his behavior. He was asked about remarks by Hall of Famers Emmitt Smith, Joe Montana and Warren Moon, who all said the young quarterback should curtail his off-the-field lifestyle.

Manziel says he respects their opinions, but adds that some recent social media reports have been distorted.

Manziel says his weekend partying is not affecting him at practice and he’s committed to football.

Manziel says he’s “tired of the hype” and scrutiny and doesn’t think he’s “doing anything wrong.” He now realizes that wherever he goes “people want to pull out their phones and follow me around and record everything.”
