Where Is Johnny Manziel Now? A Look at His Current Situation!

The Cleveland Browns selected Johnny Manziel in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft. He did, however, only play in the league for two seasons.

In 2022, Manziel told ESPN that he had “come to terms” with his rocky NFL career. He stated, “I no longer have the motivation to play football at a high level. I’m fine with the fact that I no longer have the same passion for football as I once did. I’m trying to find out how to continue to be involved in the game, but from a different position.”

Manziel’s last appearance in an NFL game was in 2015. After being diagnosed with bipolar disorder, he opened up about his struggles with substance abuse and depression in 2018.

Manziel inked a contract with the Memphis Express in the AAF in 2019 after playing for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and Montreal Alouettes in the CFL in 2018.

Manziel recently disclosed in a trailer from his Netflix documentary, ‘Untold: Johnny Football,’ that he considered suicide in 2016.

What was Johnny Manziel so Famous For?

Manziel was told he would be “bigger than LeBron James” for the city of Cleveland after being selected by the Browns in the 2014 NFL draft.

Manziel rose to fame in NCAA football after redshirting for Texas A&M’s 2011 season, garnering the nickname “Johnny Football.” Following his 43-touchdown season in 2012, Manziel’s fame exploded. He was named the winner of the Heisman Trophy, college football’s top individual prize.

According to onlookers, Johnny Manziel was one of the most entertaining college football players of all time. Because of his remarkable escapes from the pocket, his running skills, and his efficacy as a passer, he appeared to be someone who could dominate the NFL.

His career, however, was ruined by a series of off-field issues. Manziel only threw for 1,675 yards in the NFL with seven touchdowns and seven interceptions.
