Retired Chicago Bears middle linebacker Brian Urlacher didn't think much of Texas A&M star quarterback Johnny Manziel's behavior during a win over Rice.
Manziel taunted his opponent and drew an unsportsmanlike conduct penalty.
Appearing on FOX Sports 1, Urlacher didn't mince words about Manziel, the Heisman Trophy winner who was suspended for the first half for an autograph signing rules violation.
"I'm not saying he's a punk, but he acted like a punk in that game," Urlacher said Monday. "He's making plays out there and running around and running his mouth. Such a good football player, you saw in the second half, what he did : three touchdown passes and ran it pretty well. It's just too bad he had to act like that. I'm pulling for the guy. I want him to do well."
