Watching Johnny Manziel's NFL "career" the past two years, we've all thought the same thing: Damn, if that were me, if I were paid that much money I'd be less of a screwup. Maybe. We're not so much upset about his on-the-field play (yes, it could be better, but the NFL is tough) as we are the crap we keep reading about off-of-it. We understand he's a kid trying to grow up in the spotlight, but sometimes it seems like he's not even trying.
This week Manziel's ex-girlfriend claimed he not only hit her, but threatened to kill them both. Manziel has since claimed these allegations are false:
So Manziel says he's stable, safe and secure and he's ready to play football. The Twitterverse is not convinced:
Manziel a product of Affluenza we already know he won't be charged
Word is no charges will be pressed. Whether the reports are true or not, Manziel needs to get his act together. It's sad not to be good enough to play for the Browns, and honestly, if any of the stories are true, going to the Cowboys are going to make matters worse. Perhaps it's time to take some time off and get things straight.
