Cleveland Browns coach Mike Pettine said Monday he will have a meeting with quarterback Johnny Manziel over a video that surfaced Sunday night.

The video, obtained by Busted Coverage, shows Manziel singing along to “March Madness” by Future. Another individual appears in the video, apparently consuming alcohol. 

“Any time there's something with our players that casts them potentially in a bad light, whether it's Johnny or any of our other guys, it's certainly a concern,” Pettine said Monday. "I'm sure I'll see [the video] and have a discussion with him about it.”

Manziel was benched earlier this year after a video of him surfaced during the Browns’ bye week, in which the same song was playing and the quarterback appeared to be at a party. Manziel spent 10 weeks in rehab treatment in January, and reportedly lied to the team about when the first video was filmed.

Manziel was also investigated by the NFL earlier this season for a domestic dispute which involved alcohol. The Browns (3–12) play the Pittsburgh Steelers (9–6) in their regular season finale.
