Redskins LB Brian Orakpo: Johnny Manziel's middle finger 'hilarious'​

A three-time Pro Bowler, Orakpo recorded 10 sacks last season and averaged 9.5 sacks per season in his first three years in the league. A torn pectoral muscle limited him to just two games in 2012. 

Washington's defense gave up the seventh-most yards per play in the NFL last season.
