Browns backup quarterback Johnny Manziel was fined $12,000 for making an obscene gesture toward the Redskins’ sideline Monday night, according to multiple reports.
Manziel extended his middle finger in front of Washington’s bench during the third quarter of Cleveland’s 24-23 loss.
Two days later he lost to Brian Hoyer in the competition for the team’s starting quarterback job.
Manziel said after Monday’s game that he had “words exchanged” with Redskins players.
“I felt like I did a good job of holding my composure throughout the night, and you have a lapse of judgment and slip up,” he said.
