Brian Orakpo: Johnny Manziel’s Middle Finger To ‘Skins ‘Was Hilarious’

Brian OrakpoThe Johnny Manziel show continued Monday in the nation’s capital, and apparently everyone enjoyed the show — even the Washington Redskins.

The Redskins’ bench was on the receiving end of a one-fingered salute from the Cleveland Browns rookie quarterback during their preseason game, and apparently there’s no hard feelings.

“It was hilarious,” Redskins linebacker Brian Orakpo said, according to ESPN.com. “We were messing with him a little bit, just saying this ain’t college and stuff like that. We were having a little fun.

“Manziel flipped us off. It was something funny. We were all laughing on the sidelines.”

Redskins safety Ryan Clark shared Orakpo’s feeling.

“We saw it,” he said, according to ESPN.com. “I don’t care — it’s funny. Nobody cares; it’s football. I’m sure if he had the opportunity to turn around and say it, he would have.”

Plus, it’s not like the Redskins didn’t do a little taunting of their own. Orakpo and Ryan Kerrigan taunted Manziel with his “money sign” celebration after a sack in the first quarter.
