Forget toning it down. If Johnny Manziel wants to ride an inflatable swan and party with Justin Bieber, then that's what Johnny Manziel should do -- at least that's the opinion of Chris Johnson.

The Jets running back says that Manziel should get all the partying out of his system now during the offseason because once the season starts, there won't be any time for it.

"Do what you got to do. It's the offseason," Johnson told NFL.com last week when the subject of Manziel came up. "That's when you get time to do whatever you want to do and live your life. I'm pretty sure once the season gets here, he'll be all right. He's going to focus in on football. But this is the time now to where he'll be able to hang out and do some of the things you want to do. Because once the season gets here, you really have no life. It's just football and football."

If Johnson's right, then July 26 could go down as the saddest day in internet history because that's the day the Browns hold their first training camp practice, which would presumably mean no more inflatable animals or trips to Las Vegas.

If you've lost track of what Manziel's offseason has been like, here's a brief reminder: Johnny Football went to Las Vegas over Memorial Day weekend, then was back there for the Fourth of July. You could probably argue that he's spent more time in Vegas than Cleveland.

Manziel also rode the inflatable swan, hung out with Bieber in Hollywood, got drafted by the Padres, got drafted by the Harlem Globetrotters, was a clue on Jeopardy and took a selfie with RG3. He also hung out with Bieber's ex-girlfriend in Houston.

Anyway, Manziel has less than three weeks to have as much fun as possible before training camp starts and life is just 'football and football.'
