Johnny Manziel Wants To Play Football Again


After missing the entire 2016 season, former Heisman trophy winner Johnny Manziel is looking to make a return to the NFL. In a message sent to ESPN’s Ed Werder, Manziel didn’t hold back.

“I refuse to let my entire life of sports from the age of 4 be squandered by partying. I just got sick of it. One day I didn’t like what I saw in the mirror and realized I could really help people in the position I’m in.”

“I love sports, I love football and when you take something away from yourself you realize it the hard way. The happiness from doing it sober has been ASTRONOMICAL. Beyond my wildest imagination and once that continued other good things started happening in my life and it just clicked.”

With Manziel claiming to be sober now, as he mentioned, it only takes one team to believe in him.
