On Friday, this photograph of Johnny Manziel jerseys marked all the way down to $1.99 made its way around the internet:
A short time later, Manziel reposted the photo to Instagram, added a black and white filter, and wrote, “LOL.”
Manziel, the Browns’ 2014 first-round pick, may have taken his last NFL snap after a forgettable two seasons in Cleveland and an offseason of non-stop partying. But early in 2015, he appeared to be on the right path. Following a rocky rookie campaign, Manziel spent 10 weeks in a treatment facility and emerged a different person, at least according to his teammates.
Last May, then-teammate Karlos Dansby said that Manziel had “grown up right before our eyes,” adding, “He made a decision to help him be a better man [by going to treatment]. And that’s all at the end of the day that’s all we want, we want him to be the best person he can possibly be, because him being the best he can possibly be is going to be the best player that the Browns can possibly have on the field.”
It didn’t work out that way, of course. Manziel started just six games in 2015, and hours before the season finale, he was reportedly spotted partying in Las Vegaswhile wearing a disguise to avoid detection.
But recently, Dansby, who is now with the Bengals, admitted that “I probably would have committed suicide” if he faced the nonstop scrutiny that Manziel has to deal with.
Last month, Manziel’s father admitted that jail might be the best place for his son. Manziel’s response? This.
