After regaining his position as starting quarterback heading into the Cleveland Browns’ contest vs. the Tennessee Titans, DeShone Kizer decided to have some late fun.
In the day and age of social media however, a person’s whereabouts, especially the starting quarterback of an NFL franchise, won’t be hard to locate.
WOIO Cleveland 19 obtained a video of the former Notre Dame star partying at a downtown Cleveland bar at nearly 1:30 a.m. on Saturday morning.

The next day Kizer tossed two interceptions and was yanked after after half and three plays of the Browns’ 12-9 overtime loss vs. the Titans.
After the game, Kizer shrugged off questions from the media about if his partying showed a lack of commitment, according to ESPN reporter Pat McManamon.
“I was out,” Kizer said. “I was at the facility the next day, preparing for the game and the game right before that. Once again, I am not here to talk about my personal life.”
However, Browns coach Hue Jackson and his teammates are holding Kizer accountable.
“A guy’s personal time is his personal time, but I still think that is not what our guys do,” Jackson said. “I think our guys work at what they do, and I would be surprised if that happened. I have never heard of that. I don’t think DeShone has that kind of character or personality that way.”
According to Cleveland.com reporter Mary Kay Cabot, Browns wide receiver Ricardo Louis is one of Kizer’s teammates that objected to his partying.
“Personally for me, I don’t think people should be going out and doing whatever,” Louis said after the game. “For me, I don’t think I’d be doing that. I had no idea about that.”
Kizer has an NFL-worst 11 interceptions this season.
Cleveland will play the Minnesota Vikings on Oct. 29.
