Even if you wanted to avoid all the Johnny-Manziel-in-Las-Vegas coverage from last weekend, it was a nearly impossible goal. There were photos of Manziel and Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski hanging out with bikini-clad co-eds and Instagrams of him and other girls making the money-fingers sign and snapshots of Manziel at the UFC card.

By this point, Manziel's partying reputation precedes him, and though Browns owner Jimmy Haslam was recently quoted as saying that Cleveland wouldn't be like Hollywood for Manziel, Haslam didn't mention anything about Las Vegas.

Luckily, former Browns quarterback Brady Quinn -- who, like Manziel, was drafted by Cleveland with the No. 22 overall pick -- had some advice to dispense.

While speaking on ESPN on Tuesday, Quinn, currently a free agent, said Manziel should chill out with the preseason Vegas excursions. And why?

"Cleveland is a blue-collar town," Quinn said, via the National Football Post.

Quinn was recently ranked No. 20 (and dead last) in our power rankings of former Browns quarterbacks, and his inability to become the team's franchise quarterback is but one minor reason why the Browns drafted Manziel in the first place. So maybe Quinn isn't the one Manziel should be listening to, anyway.

But even if Quinn didn't provide a wake-up call, perhaps this photo of Manziel's post-Vegas vacation did the trick.

For a soon-to-be millionaire, the middle seat was probably no fun at all.
