Johnny Manziel has ‘destroyed his value’ in the NFL

Johnny Manziel and his toxic NFL future

Johnny Manziel has been involved in yet another off-field incident and this time it might be enough to end his once promising NFL career.

According to a police report filed by the Fort Worth Police Department, Manziel and ex-girlfriend Colleen Crowley, were engaged in a fight at a hotel in Dallas on Friday night and early Saturday morning.

Here’s what ESPN had to say about the report:

According to the police report, parts of which were blacked out, Manziel and his ex-girlfriend left the hotel after he struck her. Manziel drove them to his ex-girlfriend’s apartment in Fort Worth. The ex-girlfriend told officers that she and Manziel shouted angrily at each other, going back and forth during the drive, and that he struck her several more times.

Sources for WFAA in Dallas, reveal that Crowley’s affidavit says that during the drive to the apartment, Manziel said “he was going to drop me off, take my car, and go kill himself” and later told her to “shut up or I’ll kill us both.”

Manziel later told TMZ in no uncertain terms: “It did not happen.”

The Dallas Police Department said no charges were being filed and that the case was being treated as if it was already closed.

Sources told WFAA that Crowley will seek an order of protection from Manziel. The two broke up in December after two years of dating.

Mary Kay Cabot of explained Manziel’s future in Cleveland in no uncertain terms:

Adam Schefter of ESPN spoke about Manziel’s future in the NFL on ESPN Radio, saying Manziel had “destroyed his value around the league” and that he had “made it very difficult for another team to give him another chance.”

Manziel is being called a “toxic” threat for every team in the NFL.

Schefter originally believed Manziel would sign with the Dallas Cowboys, something he now believes would be “hard to imagine.”

In a further sign that Manziel is in trouble, his own dad told The Dallas Morning News on Friday that his son has refused to enter an area rehab facility twice in the past week.

Paul Manziel said he tried to have his son admitted to a psychiatric and chemical dependency hospital on Tuesday, but Manziel was allowed to leave, despite his father telling officers that he believed Manziel was suicidal.

“I truly believe if they can’t get him help, he won’t live to see his 24th birthday,” Paul Manziel told the paper.

Manziel and his agent are not commenting on his future at this time.
