QB - FA
When asked recently about his football playing career, former NFL QB Johnny Manziel said, “in the past, probably, is the way I’d characterize it. I’ve finally got to a point where I’m trying to achieve happiness in life, not happiness on the football field.”
Manziel said he also realizes a lot of people probably want to see him give the NFL another shot, but at this point, he sees himself in a better place mentally. “I can honestly say I’m happy and I’m doing the right things to try and put a smile on my face every day, and that means more to me than going out and grinding on a football field, said Manziel.” A former 2014 1st-round pick of the Cleveland Browns, Manziel only played two seasons in the NFL prior to his release. He then gave the CFL and AAF a shot in 2018 and 2019 but the AAF folded last year and Manziel hasn’t played football since. Sounds like his playing career is all but over, but the 27-year old doesn’t seem to mind much at all.
