The saga of Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel continues.
This past week, Manziel was not charged although he was accused of striking his ex-girlfriend driving from a Dallas hotel on January 29. Manziel’s father Paul Manziel expressed his desire to see his son go through rehab and counseling, or else he fears his son’s days will be numbered.
From Dallas News
“Johnny Manziel’s family is concerned for his well-being as his NFL career and personal life falter, but the quarterback has twice declined to be admitted to area rehabilitation facilities in the last week, according to his father, Paul Manziel.
“I truly believe if they can’t get him help, he won’t live to see his 24th birthday,” Paul Manziel told The Dallas Morning News.”
With the Cleveland Browns contemplating releasing Manziel in March, this proves the spectacular rise and rapid fall of the player formerly known as “Johnny Football” is a cautionary tale that will possibly be remembered in sports for a while.
