Johnny Manziel suspended four game for substance abuse policy violation

Former Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel’s downward spiral continues as he has landed a four-game suspension from the National Football League.

On Thursday, the NFL announced Manziel would be suspended for the first four games due to a violation of the league’s substance abuse policy.

TMZ was the first to report the news that Manziel would be forced to sit out the first four games this year.

It was also reported that the violation was not for performance-enhancing drugs, which is especially ironic since he claimed he would go sober on July 1, which happens to be tomorrow.

Luckily for Johnny Manziel, his suspension will not roll over, meaning that if he straightens up and signs a contract for the 2017 season, he would be able to play the entire season with no worry of missing games.
