Oh, Johnny. Poor Johnny Manziel. He's just trying to go about his business in Cleveland, waiting for the chance to take over as the Browns' starting quarterback. But then this happened:

It appears as though this actually is Manziel's phone number, since 830 is the area code for his hometown. He's going to have to toss his phone in Lake Erie to get it to stop buzzing. 

Browns' Mike Pettine says he 'can sense' Johnny Manziel is frustrated​

Johnny isn't the first athlete to get his tweets and DMs messed up, and he won't be the last. This could have been a lot worse, though. At least there was no compromising image attached. 


Now wait a second. Apparently this was a prank?

Or, as the folks at SB Nation point out, this could be Manziel trying to cover his tracks. Either way, the phone appears to be disconnected.
