Cleveland have confirmed that Johnny Manziel has been released - Alex Ferguson looks at whats gone wrong for Johnny Football. After a Heisman Trophy season with Texas A&M - including an extraordinary performance in a win over Alabama on the road - Johnny Manziel had the world at his feet. People couldnt get their eyes and ears away from the cocksure quarterback. He was bigger than most stars in the NFL, and was wowing the football world with his movement, his escape from the pocket and his God-given talent for winning games. But then the rot set in. In January 2013 he was photographed signing helmets - and getting paid for them - something thats illegal within the rules of college football. He got away with only a one-half game suspension (St Louis Rams RB Todd Gurley did the same thing in 2014 for Georgia, and was banned for four games), and then made a gesture at an opposing player, which irked his head coach. Although 2013 did not live up to 2012, Johnny Manziel was still the most heralded name in the 2014 NFL Draft. Wait until you see Johnny Manziel, I told everyone who would listen. Maybe I should have added: Youll see him in any club near you.But unfortunately, it was his partying career that led the way even before he touched the grass of Clevelands practice facilities. Before he arrived in Cleveland, there were multiple photos of him in party mode and on his first day, along with other rookies, Manziel came in late for training camp, blaming a timing issue.His life was already becoming - as they say in recovery circles - unmanageable. Most people would have checked the schedule and arrived early. Especially if they are paid millions of dollars.As highlighted by SportingNews.com in a list of Manziel incidents, other problems began to mount. He was fined $12,000 in only his second pre-season game for swearing. In November 2014, Manziel and his entourage were allegedly involved in a fight at a Cleveland apartment building, where police were called and a fan later apologised (Manziel was not arrested or fined by the NFL over the incident). Manziel was also seen appearing to swear at NBA officials from the front seats of NBA games involving the Cleveland Cavaliers.Manziel tried the contrition tack in an effort to right the yacht: Its about action, he said. Its about being accountable and doing what Im gonna say, instead of looking like a jackass. Either Im going to learn or Im going to be finding something else to do.Photographs of Manziel in a Miami club appeared 12 hours later. An ESPN report looking into Manziels first-year career said about those interviewed: Those who spoke talked of a year-long pattern that showed a lack of commitment and preparation, a failure to be ready when given a chance in his first start against Cincinnati and a continued commitment to nightlife, which affected his preparation and work while in the team facility.In the off-season of 2015, Manziel took a step forward in his life and decided to go to rehab for three months (or 90 days, in recovery speak). Either he was forced by the Browns, the NFL and his family, or he decided himself. Either way, it was a good idea. This writer has seen many people get sober through rehab, but also a lot who havent. So naturally, I said a prayer for Johnny Football and hoped hed be in the former category.Manziel was reportedly back out drinking in less than six months.Manziel started the season with much improvement, striking a relationship with Travis Benjamin and generally looking a step towards the Johnny Manziel that football fans had known and loved. But off the field, the train was getting worse. Manziel was pulled over by police after getting in an argument with then-girlfriend Colleen Crowley. No charges were made, although at the time Manziel had admitted the pair had been drinking before subsequently refuting that claim.Then, another photograph emerged of Manziel appearing to be drunk (probably not the best look during the season) during Clevelands bye week. Manziel tried to explain himself, denying drinking but it was the off-the-field incidents that really angered coach Mike Pettine: It goes well beyond the field. We are going to continue to support him in every way possible, but at this point, weve decided its best to go with [Josh McCown] as the starter going forward.Pettine was fired at the end of last season, and new coach Hue Jackson was rumoured to immediately want rid of Manziel - and that departure has now been confirmed. Staying or not, the clouds darken for the player. Theres an accusation that he assaulted Crowley in January. No charges or arrests have been been made but she has put a protective order against him, which was not fought. Manziel has denied anything happened, and has said everythings fine.Remember this: Alcoholics always think they are OK….until they really arent. I know about alcohol problems because Ive been in AA for 15 years. And kept sober. Manziel is terrifying his family. His father, Paul is worried Johnny wont live much longer after his son refused another stint in rehab (he was offered stays at two places), according to his interview with the Dallas Morning News. I truly believe if they cant get him help, he wont live to see his 24th birthday, he said. Manziel has insisted that he is fine.Lets hope he does. But right now, Manziels playing with his career, his future, and very probably - his life. He needs to sort things out.If he doesnt, Johnny Football will be the next Ryan Leaf.

Kelly Oubre Jr. Suns Jersey . -- The Sacramento Kings are set to become the first major professional sports franchise to accept Bitcoin virtual currency for ticket and merchandise purchases. ORCHARD PARK, N.Y. -- Aaron Williams acknowledged that a neck injury that kept him out 13 games last season and a recent concussion might have a long-term effect on his health, but the sixth-year Buffalo Bills safety said Tuesday that he cant think about the potential impact of the injuries.Honestly, it probably does have an effect in the future. But am I thinking about that? No, Williams said. I cant think about it, because if I think about it, its going to happen. I just got to go out and just play and be me.Yall got to understand, I love this game to the bottom of my heart and would do anything to keep playing this game. But I know I have to change a lot of things to play this game.Williams missed all four of the Bills preseason games and significant practice time following a collision with Bills receiver Dezmin Lewis in a drill during an Aug. 11 practice. The Bills fully cleared him to practice this week after he spent the past several weeks in the NFLs concussion protocol.I just remember being hit and then getting up and being in the training room, Williams said of the freak accident with Lewis. I couldnt even tell you what I was thinking, probably, because I wasnt thinking. It was just one of those things that just happened. I couldnt really tell you what I was thinking or what was going on in my mind because the whole time, my head was ringing. I was just trying to make sure that my neck was actually good. I was more concerned about my neck than my head.Bills players and the teams medical staff were initially concerned about Williams neck because of an injury the safety suffered during a Week 2 loss to the New England Patriots last season. Williams was taken from the field in an ambulance during that game after experiencing numbness in parts off his body when he landed hard attempting to make a diving tackle near the end zone.ddddddddddddWilliams returned to play in Week 5 against the Tennessee Titans but experienced further numbness early in the game, resulting in the Bills placing him on injured reserve to end his season. He later underwent surgery to shave vertebrae in his neck.The Bills regular-season opening game Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens will mark Williams return to the field for the first time since his neck surgery, as well as his first live game action since his concussion.The Dez [Lewis collision] just confirmed that my neck is good, he said Tuesday. Theres no doubts in my mind if I can go 100 percent. I wont play conservative, I guess you could put it. I only know one speed to play, and thats full speed. Of course, I will be smart in how I play, but overall I feel really good.New Bills assistant defensive backs coach Ed Reed has instructed Williams to be more cautious as a tackler.Did I take those words to heart? I mean, its coming from a Hall of Famer, so I hope and pray to God that Im listening, Williams said Tuesday. But he watched me over the offseason, and this is before we even talked, we came together when I came back and he said, Weve got you in the game, you like to hit too many times for unnecessary reasons.But I never knew that, because I only knew one way to play, and that was to stop the person that has the ball no matter what the repercussions are. But now I got with Ed and we studied how I played and I studied how he played. And it helps out to know how to play smart and not to just play all out, full speed ahead at all times. ' ' '
