Johnny Manziel makes big new claim about his drinking habits

Football News

Johnny Manziel is an absolute mess right now, blasting out of the National Football League following a failed stint in rehab and failed performances on the field.

The former Texas A&M Aggies quarterback was released by the Cleveland Browns at the end of last season and has seemingly spent every waking minute of that time getting well and truly smashed with his mates.

However, the Heisman-winning QB is apparently claiming that he has made a huge change to his habits.

Snapchat Update

According to a report from the Dallas News, Manziel is actually serious about his quest to stay sober and took to his personal Snapchat account earlier this week to update everyone on how that mission is going.

"The former Cleveland Browns and Texas A&M quarterback sent friends messages on Snapchat Friday with him drinking water while others were enjoying alcohol, according to a source," the report stated.

"Manziel added the hashtag #SoberDay1 to his messages sent a few days after ESPN reported the former Heisman Trophy winner vowed to stay sober starting July 1."

Manziel was previously suspended for four games by Roger Goodell and Co. after violating the substance abuse policy. Maybe that was the wake up call he needed.

As the quote states, ESPN ran their own story on Manziel's sobriety recently, complete with a source claiming he is serious about it.

"I do believe he's serious," the source told ESPN. "He's talked for a while about knuckling down, getting ready and working out. It's more about health and having options and feeling good. If that works out for this season, great. But if not, that's OK too."

Will we ever see Johnny Manziel back in the NFL? It's too soon to tell, but at least he is on the right path.
