The football career of Johnny Manziel has been one hell of a ride, with extreme highs and lows in equal measure.
Once the star recruit and Heisman-winning quarterback for Texas A&M, Manziel was drafted by the Cleveland Browns in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft. Just two years later, he is out of the league after a series of substance abuse problems and has been suspended by the league for the first four games of the 2016 season.
However, that suspension isn't deterring Manziel, who today seemed to indicate that he was going to make a return to the NFL.

Taking to his Instagram page, the explosive playmaker made it clear that he isn't ready to call time on his career just yet.
"You all write about a day in my life and what goes on...here it is," Manziel wrote on an Instagram video.
"No secrets, no hiding, I''m not what you read about. I'll be back... In time. It can't end like this...it won't. I love you all even though your comments suck. 👌🏻✌🏼️🙏🏼"
Manziel then went on to apologize to Texas A&M on Twitter, reiterating his desire make a change and turn things around.
The tweet Manziel was replying to wasn't even anyone calling him out. It was a video of himself scoring a 50-yard touchdown against UTEP. That was what Manziel was capable of back in college, making players miss on his way to another incredible score.
If he can get to anywhere near the level of play that he showed as an Aggie, Manziel could become a starting QB in the NFL. He just needs to get serious about going clean and working hard for a team.
During his time with the Browns, Manziel went 2-6 as a starter, throwing for 1,675 yards, seven touchdowns and seven interceptions.
