Johnny Manziel of the Cleveland Browns is, well, no longer a Cleveland Brown.

Why was Johnny Manziel fired by his agent? Because he put getting high above his career in football. The classic behavior of an addict is to pick drugs over everything else in life. I know because I am one. I was an addict who got clean in 1986 at age 28. I was making huge money and living in a slum.

For Manziel to go to a rock concert when he knew everyone was watching him was clearly insane. Manziel may have already blown his chance at ever playing football again, but if he does not get help soon, he may even lose his life.
