Cowboys executive VP Stephen Jones said there's "no chance" Dallas would sign free agent Johnny Manziel.
"Obviously Johnny needs to get his hands around his life," Jones said. "He needs to do the things that make him a good person off the field, I think, before he can ever have any chance of being successful in our league." Manziel has said numerous times he'd love to play for his home-state Cowboys, but the feeling isn't mutual. Manziel is unlikely to play in 2016. Aug 12 - 12:13 PM

TMZ Sports reports Johnny Manziel punched a man at a wedding in Hawaii.

Manziel reportedly has a history with the punchee, and the tense relationship "came to a head" the night before the wedding. The fight was broken up quickly, and the police were not called. Manziel reportedly sent a bottle of champagne to the man's room along with a letter of apology. It does not sound like anything will come of this incident, but it is not a great look for a player who has publically claimed he is trying to get his life together.

According to the Washington Post, "many" of free agent Johnny Manziel's friends "have no idea whether he'll play football again," or "if he even wants to."

One friend said Manziel "orders the subject change" whenever someone brings up football. "Just a known thing that you don’t really bring up unless he wants to." The same friend said in May "he didn’t think Manziel had any intention of playing again." Another of Manziel's friends said Johnny Football recently resumed working out, hired a personal chef, and "has stuck to his goal" of staying sober since July 1. A statement from Manziel was emailed to the Post. "I’m not saying I’m never drinking again, but for now just mostly being healthy," Manziel wrote. "I’ve got a killer gym in my house and I can spend time working out. I’m interested in doing a lot of different things in my life — including football — but, right now, I’m just exploring options and waiting to see what the future holds."

Profootballtalk reports the Browns successfully voided free agent Johnny Manziel's remaining guaranteed money before his release.

It means Manziel is out $2.173 million. Per Mike Florio, no grievance was filed, presumably because the NFLPA knew it didn't have a case. The Browns could void Manziel's remaining guarantees over a plethora of issues, including his suspension and skipping town late last season. If Manziel is to believed, he's been sober since July 1.

ESPN's Jeremy Fowler reports suspended free agent Johnny Manziel is unlikely to attempt a comeback before 2017.

The reasons are obvious. Manziel is suspended for a minimum of four games, and isn't close to being in football shape. That's not to mention his continued commitment to partying. The odds of Manziel being on someone's roster this season are zero. They're only slightly better for 2017.

NFL suspended free agent QB Johnny Manziel four games for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.

The news comes one day after Manziel claimed he was getting sober (after a few more days of partying). In truth, he's lucky the ban isn't longer. Of course, when/if Manziel attempts to resume his career, he'll be facing an additional suspension for violating the league's personal-conduct policy in his domestic violence case. Manziel's path back to the NFL — if he has one — will have to include a clear commitment to sobriety between now and next offseason. Then and only then will anyone be willing to roll the dice. Even if he gets his act together, it's quite possible Manziel never gets another NFL contract.

Ex-NFL QB Johnny Manziel said he's going "completely sober" starting this Friday, July 1.

"No booze, eating right and training like crazy." Those were apparently Manziel's words to TMZ Sports. JFF also said he's determined to make an NFL comeback and ready to get back to work. Only after two more days of binge drinking and partying. We'd be shocked if Manziel plays in 2016.

An attorney for Johnny Manziel who accidently sent a damaging text to the Associated Press last week has been removed from his domestic violence case.

In a text intended for another lawyer, Bob Hinton indicated Manziel spent more than $1,000 at a drug paraphernalia shop hours after being involved in a hit-and-run accident and said "heaven help us" if Manziel had to pass a drug test as a condition of a plea deal. Manziel is accused of hitting and threatening former girlfriend Colleen Crowley during an incident in January.

Speaking to ESPN's Josina Anderson, Johnny Manziel's father said, "My son is a druggie and he needs help."

"Hopefully he doesn't die before he comes to his senses," said Paul Manziel. "I hate to say it but I hope he goes to jail. I mean, that would be the best place for him." This isn't the first time Manziel's father has publicly pleaded for Johnny to seek help and it probably won't be the last. Earlier this week, Manziel's lawyer Bob Hinton accidentally revealed to the Associated Press that he's seeking a plea deal in his domestic violence case. Things just keep getting worse for Johnny Football.

According to the Associated Press, Johnny Manziel's lawyer is seeking a plea deal in his domestic violence case.

Defense attorney Bob Hinton also expressed doubts about Manziel's sobriety. "Heaven help us if one of the conditions is to pee in a bottle," said Hinton in a text message that was intended for another lawyer but was actually sent to the Associated Press. In the exchange, Hinton also hinted that Manziel may have spent over $1,000 at a drug paraphernalia store only 15 hours after getting into a hit-and-run accident. Manziel's life continues to spiral out of control. At this point, it would be a shock if he ever plays another NFL snap.
Jun 24 - 6:00 PM

Ex-NFL QB Johnny Manziel has been involved in another mysterious car crash.

This time, Manziel's Nissan GTR was t-boned, damaging the driver's side. Manziel reported it to the police as a hit-and-run. The former No. 22 overall pick was a passenger in an alleged hit-and-run back in April. Manziel's offseason has been full of non-football events, and a change to that pattern doesn't seem imminent.

The New York Post reports ex-NFL QB Johnny Manziel "went missing" over the weekend when he was supposed to host a party in the Hamptons for friends and family.

Manziel was scheduled for a helicopter ride to the Hamptons on Saturday, but "didn't show" for his flight. TMZ reported Manziel "got into a confrontation" outside the Trump Solo hotel on Friday night after Manziel and friends crashed a rented Mercedes Benz in Los Angeles and the owner of the rental "tracked him down and came looking for him." Manziel news is no longer football relevant, but tracking his post-career escapades has been pretty fascinating.
May 30 - 4:10 PM

Ex-NFL QB Johnny Manziel's friends are convinced he'll die if he continues his behavior.

Manziel continues to drink heavily and is now allegedly not even trying to hide his cocaine issue. "He's in a horrible downward spiral," one person close to Manziel said. "If he continues this way for much longer he will die." Apparently a group of Manziel's friends tried to confront him about his problems, but he "flipped out and wouldn't hear it." We have a hard time believing Manziel even has "friends." He seems to merely have drinking and drug buddies.

Former NFL QB Johnny Manziel was kicked out of a Vegas nightclub on Friday night after he allegedly "hauled off and punched a guy."

Standing in a VIP booth at Jewel Nightclub, Manziel allegedly "got pushed" when club goers began pushing and shoving after rapper Drake showed up for a surprise performance. Manziel proceeded to "slug" a fellow club goer and was kicked out by security. TMZ also recently released photos of Manziel without his shirt in which he appears emaciated with tattoos all over his body.
