Johnny Manziel has been on a rollercoaster for what seems like an eternity.
The party-boy, rockstar style quarterback appears to be walking a straighter path these days, even hinting at an NFL comeback.
Manziel discussed how he is sober and training multiple days a week in an effort to land with a quarterback-needy franchise during a recent interview with TMZ.
Manziel was out of the NFL all last season while he dealt with criminal charges stemming from an assault on his ex-girlfriend, Colleen Crowley. Manziel was able to avoid jail time after he agreed to a conditional dismissal agreement that included his going to anger management.
Now that his focus is fully on football, Johnny Manziel might have to face the reality that teams still don’t want him.
In his brief professional career, Manziel left a lot to be desired for an NFL quarterback. Without the prototypical size, “Johnny Football” too often had to resort to using his feet to escape trouble; a band-aid solution in the NFL where everybody is fast.
Even if he works out eight or nine days a week, the list of teams who will look at Manziel as anything other than a scout team quarterback is short.
