Whether he wants it or not, Johnny Manziel is being offered lots of advice. And some of it comes from guys who were star NFL quarterbacks.

The latest to check in is Hall of Famer Warren Moon. His big issue with the Cleveland Browns rookie is how public it is whenever Johnny Football is out enjoying himself.

“All guys are going to go out and have a good time,” Moon said on SiriusXM NFL Radio, as transcribed by Pro Football Talk. “Quarterbacks, all different positions. But you don’t want to make it as public. You want to keep it more of a low profile when you are out having a good time. He tends to make it more of a high-profile thing when he’s out, so that just opens up all this speculation and criticism by everybody out here.”

Moon doesn't begrudge Manziel his fun. Hey, Moon said, he's made his own trips to Las Vegas. Of course, when Moon was playing QB, whatever he did, it was back in the days before Twitter and Instagram.

“So he needs to be more low-key about the things he does, and as long as he’s putting in the work off the field and on the field to become the best quarterback he can be, I have no problem with what he’s doing, except for the fact that he needs to keep more of a low profile,” Moon said.
