If Johnny Manziel ever needs another giant stack of cash that he can pretend is a cell phone, Tuesday was his lucky day, because that's when he officially agreed to terms with the Browns on his four-year rookie contract.

Manziel will earn $8.247 million during the course of his four-year deal with a $4.32 million signing bonus, and the club holds an option for year No. 5.

The Browns traded up to No. 22 in the first round in order to land Manziel in a move that won Twitter applause from's Pete Prisco.

Since then, Manziel has gone on a wild ride that includes a highly-publicized trip to Las Vegas, a ride on an inflatable swan in Austin, and the aforementioned money phone call Manziel tried to make in Houston last weekend.
