Johnny Manziel is out of control, that's just a fact right now.
The former Cleveland Browns quarterback has been suspended for four games by the National Football League for apparently violating the league's substance-abuse policy.
Judging by the fact that Manziel was recently pictured smoking something that looked incredibly like a joint, along with the allegation that he and a group of friends left lines of cocaine and magic mushrooms on a table in an Airbnb, this comes as no surprise to anybody.

Manziel is currently a free agent after being released by the Browns earlier this year. It looks like the suspension would start if he were to sign with a team, rather than just being completely out of the first four games of the season.
The prospect of Manziel getting another team to sign him, however, are very slim. It looks like the former Heisman Winner has just given up on professional football.
Last week, Manziel's father raised the level of concern for his son by telling ESPN's Josina Anderson that Manziel is a "druggie" and that a stint in jail might save his life. Johnny replied in typical fashion by captioning a picture of him on holiday in Mexico with "hi Dad."
The elder Manziel went on to add that he checked his son into a rehab clinic earlier this year, but the quarterback somehow "escaped."
Manziel could face additional discipline under the personal conduct policy for other transgressions, including being charged with assaulting his girlfriend.
He faces misdemeanour assault charges for allegedly rupturing the eardrum of former girlfriend Colleen Crowley. Manziel is pleading not guilty. If he is found guilty then he will face another suspension.
This is just the latest news from the Johnny Manziel saga. Tune back in next month when he'll no doubt he hitting the headlines for all the wrong reasons yet again.
