Both Brian Hoyer and Johnny Manziel struggled to move the Browns offense in their second preseason game Monday night, but a gesture from Manziel put all the attention back on the rookie.

Manziel played in several series after halftime and did lead the Browns to a touchdown early in the fourth quarter, finishing 7-16 for 65 yards and a touchdown pass.

But after an incompletion with 2:28 left in the third, the cameras caught Manziel appearing to give the Washington bench the finger.

The move drew a huge reaction on social media and will likely lead to more conversations about the maturity of Manziel, who would've been a redshirt junior at Texas A & M.

ESPN reported that Manziel could be subject to a fine of over $11,000.
