The Cleveland Browns’ Johnny Manziel era is years in the rearview mirror, and the quarterback has begun to discuss what went wrong in a career that went from a Heisman Trophy as a freshman to a spectacular flameout in the National Football League, then the Canadian Football League.
Manziel appeared on the YNK podcast Tuesday episode, addressing a Browns tenure most of the team’s fans are still trying to forget.
After 42 minutes, Manziel is asked if he felt he had lost his teammates when his career waned. His answer was breathtakingly frank.
« If I look back now, I would say that I have absolutely 100 percent lost their respect. Why wouldn’t you If I were one of them looking back at what I did and your choices that you make outside of the field will have an impact when I feed mine. I would say we wasted a draft pick to get this guy who doesn’t give an F – K. And that’s my only thing in life that I couldn’t look back on and that I would have liked to have closed completely. . . . It’s probably one of the few things that I didn’t look back at that could be super, super okay with what happened. «
Manziel went on to say that he had wasted two years of Joe Thomas’ Hall of Fame career and that he regretted not being closer to his teammates. He said he’d aired things with a few teammates for the past two years, but that doesn’t change what happened:
I didn’t have the bother on my mind like I did to be great in college like I did in Cleveland, and I feel disrespectful to the guys who were there and were legends for making them pulled your ass off. «
The story of Manziels Brown’s career continues to be known, though it’s easy to forget how bad things got when he was spotted on Planet Hollywood in Las Vegas the night before a Browns game. Manziel stopped playing in the NFL after the incident, which was followed by a domestic violence investigation and drug abuse suspension.
Manziel attempted to continue his career in the Canadian Football League and Alliance of American Football, but the former ended in a life ban and the latter with the collapse of the league. Manziel admitted that by June his football career was basically over.

The final moments of Asif Kapadia’s great film Diego Maradona are almost too painful to watch. To a soundtrack of an interview he conducted at the height of his powers in Napoli, when he talks about the football pitch being a haven, a refuge, a place of freedom where he can express himself without fear, we see Maradona in his late fifties he was trying to play five-a-side with his friends. The juxtaposition of the glorious athlete of our collective memory and the hobbling, bulbous, arthritic shadow that he became is a telling reflection of his demise. So steep was his fall that it seemed almost the result of a fist pact, an agreement to become the most influential footballer in the world in return for an athletic afterlife of misery and self-loathing. The sadness is that any evaluation of his genius can only take into account what happened next. It had taken a long time, but we started getting indications that he had disbanded at the 1994 World Cup. The man who dragged his country to victory in 1986 and almost repeated the trick in 1990 has since become a drug addict parody of his glory days. His goggle-eyed celebration when he scored his last goal for his country in the game against Greece was a symptom of his personal nightmare: the man was irreparably wired. Forbidden, traded and embarrassed, his career as a player was over. But back in his homeland he was still worshiped. And no wonder, given what he had delivered. He took his fame as a chat show host into a lucrative turn before his inability to control his appetite compromised his ability to formulate a question. Even so, he knew his way around football and in 2005 he was offered a role as sports director at Boca Juniors, his old club in Buenos Aires’ harshest neighborhood. In a stadium that remains a shrine to his brilliance 25 years after he last kicked a ball there, his presence was an inspiration. Boca won four trophies in two seasons, watching enthusiastically from his private box. However, in a way that was to become a pattern, it didn’t last. He fell out with the club president and was gone.
