Johnny Manziel Update: Alcohol and drug addiction getting worst, friend says ‘he’s gonna die’

Former Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel seems to be out of control, making his friend and family worried about his addiction to alcohol and drugs.

In the past months, many people tried to convince Johnny Manziel to undergo a rehabilitation program to revive his career. However, he refused the offer and continued partying where he often engaged in different kinds of trouble.

According to a report from TMZ, people who are close to him says that he is going to die unless he changed his current lifestyle.

“He’s in a horrible downward spiral. If he continues this way for much longer he will die.”

According to Frank Schwab of Shutdown Corner:

“We’ve never seen a professional athlete’s destructive story play out publicly quite like this before. Each story, most of which are being reported by a celebrity gossip site, has been bad. Even those who were strangely wondering earlier this offseason if Manziel would get another chance in the NFL have given up that pipe dream.”

“The way it stands now, Manziel has zero chance of ever playing professional football again. He’d have to rehabilitate himself first, then rehabilitate his image, before a team even considers signing him. And even if a team started to investigate whether that was a good idea, the fact that Manziel never showed he could be a competent NFL starter won’t make him a good candidate for a second chance. All that’s left is watching what happens to him off the field.”

Way back in February, Johnny’s father Paul Manziel said that if his son will not get any help, there is a possibility that he won’t live to see his 24th birthday. It is undeniable that Johnny Manziel has the potential to be a superstar in the NFL. However, his actions are opposite of going back to sports he used to love.
