Well, that was quick. One tweet and the straight edged Johnny is gone. Manziel deleted his Twitter account on Monday after sending a tweet to our new president Donald Trump. The tweet read, “Yo, POTUS even I know to stay away from the notifications section on twitter. S— will drive you crazy, lead the country and let them hate,” Manziel tweeted Monday afternoon, followed by a tweet that read: “Control what you can control and let the rest fall by the wayside.”
It seems that the removal of his account was due to the tweet but Manziel’s spokesperson Denise Michaels said, “He told me [Twitter is] not a priority and he’s trying to eliminate distractions.”
He sent a message to ESPN’s Ed Werder late last week, saying he has achieved sobriety without professional assistance and is determined to resume his career in the NFL. I’m pretty sure it is hard to get sober without help so I’m severely doubting Johnny’s claim.
Manziel, whom the Browns selected with the 22nd pick in the 2014 NFL draft, spent 10 weeks in rehab after his rookie season. He was released by the Browns last March and was suspended for the first four games of the 2016 season for violating the NFL’s substance-abuse policy.
He reached an agreement last month with the Dallas County district attorney’s office to have domestic violence charges dropped if he meets certain conditions throughout the year. He was accused of hitting and threatening his former girlfriend during a night out last January.
So the Johnny football return was rather short lived.
P.S If he really is sober he looks rather good in a Pats uniform.
