Johnny Manziel says football career is ‘in the past, probably’
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.
