From his Heisman heights to his unexpected low of tumbling to the 22nd pick in the NFL Draft, Johnny Manziel's maintained a party boy image. The Texas A&M University legend fueled that bad boy persona yet again by getting photographed partying it up in Las Vegas during Memorial Day weekend.

Manziel spent his Sunday afternoon with New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski and Los Angeles DJ, Diplo enjoying a poolside party at Encore Beach Club in Wynn Las Vegas before attending the UFC 173 fight between Renan Barao and TJ Dillashaw.

The 21-year-old NFL celebrity struck his infamous show me the money pose for photos with fans and bikini clad babes. Later, he hit up Surrender nightclub at Encore a little after midnight. With all of it gleefully documented by others on Twitter.

Manziel's weekend vacay was followed by all the usual media criticism and fan scrutiny. But Johnny Football responded early Tuesday morning, tweeting a picture of his iPad, headphones and playbook on the plane with the caption "Guess it's impossible to enjoy the weekend and study?"

Manziel is back with the Cleveland Browns in Ohio now, participating in the team's organized team activities (unofficial practices) as the countdown toward training camp continues.
