Tragic Details About The Man Once Known As Johnny 'Football'

Johnny Manziel was poised to become one of the greatest quarterbacks in football history when he was drafted by the Cleveland Browns in 2014. But soon enough, he became another disgraced sports star instead. Let’s take a look at his tragic downfall.

Before he played his first NFL game, Manziel was living the good life. Thanks to his family’s riches, which were acquired in the Texas oil industry, he wasn’t broke and feasting on ramen noodles like other college kids. Instead, he had more than enough money to party, travel, and hobnob with celebrities. That said, when the headlines favored his bad behavior over his on-field exploits, it made many people question if he had the drive and focus to become an NFL superstar.

In 2012, Manziel was arrested after being involved in a fight during his freshman year at Texas A&M. He spent the night in jail after being charged with disorderly conduct, failure to identify, and possession of a false identification card. Despite his arrest and ever-growing reputation for being a misfit, he was chosen to be a counselor at the 2013 Manning Passing Academy, a four-day football camp hosted by the Manning football family. But the move didn’t exactly work out for him. There were rumors that he had overslept and skipped out on coaches’ meetings. His parents even called in sick for him at one point, citing dehydration. Eventually, he and the camp’s officials mutually decided that he would leave a day early.
