Pic: More Johnny Football Fan Art Puts Manziel in Browns Colors

We’ve spent a lot of time talking about Johnny Manziel already. He’s spent time talking about the Browns in the past week. It’s no wonder that talented graphic artists continue to use their talents to put Johnny in Cleveland colors well ahead of the NFL Draft. Here’s another really good rendition of Johnny wearing the Orange and Brown. Assuming it happens in the draft, that’d be a pretty great poster for kids to put on their walls, huh?

Texas A&M was so appreciative of Johnny Football’s time there, they went ahead and made one as a “Thank You!”

But wait, there’s more. Infographics too!
