Ever since the Cleveland Browns traded up in the 2014 NFL Draft and took Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel, he has brought one wave after another of bad press.

From big nights out partying to missing practice and being caught on camera at the worst possible times, Manziel could be summed up as one big regret for the Browns.

Newest and worst?

The latest media interest on Manziel could however be his worst one yet with claims of him threatening murder and suicide.

A story that is not normally heard of in the NFL, the second year quarterback was involved in an altercation with his now former girlfriend towards the end of January - for which the Dallas PD have not charged Manziel for any legal wrong doing.

However the account of the incident from Colleen Crowley - Manziel's now ex, tells a very different and disturbing story.

Crowley has re-told the events of the night of January 30th where she went for drinks with friends before meeting up with the NFL player.

That was where the night turned sour however with Crowley claiming that the couple got into an arguement before he restrained her and led her to the valet area.

Then claiming that she told the valet that she feared for her life and that the football star struck her several times as he drove her back to her apartment, Crowley tells a harrowing tale.

Arguably the most disturbing part of the tale though, is that Manziel reportedly told her that he would not only kill her, but also end his own life.

Manziel has obviously come out and denied these claims but with his character already being questioned many times, will it really do much to stop the speculation?

The Browns have already announced that they will be cutting Manziel when the new league year starts in March, but will he get another opportunity in the NFL after this latest controversy?
