Former NFL Quarterback Johnny Manziel Admits His Football Career Is Probably ‘in the Past’

When asked about the future, Manziel was clear he doesn't imagine he'll return to the field professionally.

"In the past, probably, is the way I'd characterize it," he said of his career.

After he was released from the Browns, Manziel briefly played for the Canadian Football League before signing with the now-defunct AAF.

In 2018, Manziel revealed to ABC News that he suffers from depression and was taking medication for bipolar disorder during his time with the franchise.

“That’s what I thought would make me happy and get out of that depression,” Manziel said.

“When I would wake up the next day after a night like that, going on a trip like that, and you wake up the next day and that is all gone, that liquid courage, or that liquid … sense of euphoria that is over you is all gone," he continued.

Manziel admitted to the Avalanche-Journal that he's been "humbled" in the years since he played in the NFL.

“I think it’s just, the work you put in when you have the free hours and when you do things on your own, that matches up accordingly with what happens on the field. And when you get to thinking that you’re too good or you’re better than the game, it’ll humble you," he said.

"And that’s what happened. I got humbled," Manziel continued. "Thank God I did get a chance to be humbled, because when you think you’re at the top of the world, it’s a dangerous place."
