This failed QB who has a great nickname was going to try and make a comeback but there was no way he was going to pass any drug test.
After tweeting and deleting desire to join XFL, Johnny Manziel says he has ‘zero interest’ in playing
It appears like Johnny Manziel isn’t interested in joining the XFL after all. The former Cleveland Browns quarterback and Texas A&M star took to Twitter late Friday night and tweeted a message to XFL commissioner Oliver Luck expressing his interest in joining the rebooted league.
“Oliver Luck,” Manziel wrote. “If ya wanna boost your ratings to another level, just send me the contract tomorrow and we’re in there. Like I said YEARS ago … XFL2020 give the people what they want.”
In the hours after that tweet was published, Manziel’s account was completely deleted off Twitter, which led to speculation that his account could have been hacked or he simply regretted the post after putting his true feelings out there for all of social media to see. Since then, Manziel revived his social media accounted by tweeting “Love trollin” on Saturday night. – Source
Who Is Johnny Football?
The kid was a full-blown sports prodigy almost from the time he could walk. He was driving golf balls at the age of two, beating adults when he was ten. In youth baseball he hit so many home runs that the league installed a twelve-foot net over the fence. He responded by clearing it, once even breaking a window in a nearby house. When he was in seventh grade, he could stand on the 50-yard line, take a crow hop, and throw a football through the goalposts. He was descended from a long line of ferocious competitors—boxers and football players and drag-boat racers and cockfighters and scratch golfers and people who hated to lose even a friendly card game with their own children. Over the generations that fierce desire to win had been distilled repeatedly, reduced to a powerful concentrate that ran in the kid’s veins like an electric current. In high school he was a two-sport athlete: a spectacular, record-setting quarterback and an All-District shortstop who hit .416. As a nineteen-year-old redshirt freshman at Texas A&M, he set the world on fire, electrifying college football fans with his speed and swagger on the way to winning the Heisman Trophy. The kid never stopped moving. If he wasn’t on the field, he was hunting and fishing in the forests and creeks of the Hill Country, where his parents lived, or the lakes and piney woods of East Texas, where his family has deep roots. And even then he hated to lose, had to catch more fish and bag more bucks than anyone. The kid was wired in every possible way to need to win, no matter the game, no matter the opponent. But on the evening of August 4, 2013, he was facing the possibility of a major, soul-crushing defeat.
It was the night before Texas A&M’s fall training camp, and several hours earlier, the news had broken that the NCAA was reportedly investigating the kid for getting paid during the off-season to sign memorabilia, a violation of the league’s amateurism rules. Instead of strolling into camp the next day as a conquering hero, he would arrive under a cloud of doubt, with questions swirling about whether he would even get to play. As he practiced that week, the storm of negative publicity just got worse, as allegations from various anonymous sources rolled through the Internet and denunciations rained down on him from all sides.- Source
