Johnny Manziel told TMZ in June that he would commit to staying sober on July 1 and work out to get into football shape after he posted videos from a vacation rental in Mexico. Manziel was suspended four games for violating the NFL’s substance abuse policy shortly after his sobriety pledge.
Whether that happens still remains to be seen, but Manizel hasn’t given up hope on his football career.
The Washington Post’s Kent Babb wrote a long feature about Manziel’s struggles on and off the field. And although Manziel declined to be interviewed for the piece, he issued a statement through a spokesperson.
