Right around this time four years ago, Texas A&M freshman quarterback John Manziel was being presented with the illustrious Heisman Trophy after he led his team to an 11-2 record during his first season as the school’s starting signal caller. Fast forward to today and Manziel is nothing but a sad drunk who will not get the help he so desperately needs.
Recently, he turned 24 years old and to celebrate, he and his friend Mr. Fireball Whisky decided to get an early start to their day.

The video is not a good look for someone who spent a number of weeks in a rehab facility back in 2015 to try and kick his alleged alcohol addiction.
This is just the latest instance of the sad display that Manziel’s life has become since leaving Texas A&M. Once thought of a promising quarterback who had the potential to be a star in the NFL, he now has a better shot at being the star on the next season of ‘Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew’.
He has not played in the league since Week 16 of the 2015 NFL season with the Cleveland Browns. Oddly enough, Manziel is the last quarterback to lead the Browns to a victory since the franchise is currently riding a 15-game regular season losing streak.
After two unproductive years in Cleveland, the team decided to waive him last March and not a single team has decided to give the kid another shot at success in the league.
Since his last NFL game, Manziel has found his name in the headlines for all the wrong reasons.
He’s been accused of getting into physical altercations with others, drinking on rooftops, and chugging champagne at parties with rappers. For someone who reportedly wants to get back on an NFL team, Manziel is going to get a rude awakening when he finds out that no team wants to sign the modern day version of Ryan Leaf.
