Troubled NFL free agent quarterback Johnny Manziel promised things would be different this time. He would remain clean and sober and was working out in Hawaii to show that he can help a team.
So what happens a day after his promise? Manziel got into an altercation with a wedding guest the day before a friend’s wedding at the Four Seasons Hotel. Manziel insists that he was not the aggressor in a story that appeared on TMZ.com.
Manziel believed the other man was the aggressor and was fed up with being hounded. In a quick decision, Manziel threw one punch and the fight was over in seconds. Police were not called and Johnny Football reportedly sent a bottle of champagne to the unidentified man with a note that read: “Truly apologize. Should have never done that. Know this won’t make it better, but hope it starts the day off right.”
Manziel, 23, is currently an NFL free agent after being released by the Cleveland Browns. No team wants to take a chance on him even as a backup because of a series of fights, alcohol abuse and just plain old silly behavior.

NFL free agent quarterback Johnny Manziel disappeared from the Browns, but emerged in Las Vegas with a blonde wig and moustache, telling people he was Billy.
Recently he apologized to fans and vowed he would be back. Manziel even posted a video of him working out in Hawaii.
“I have good friends around me supporting what I do and I try to support them in what they want to do,” Manziel told the Washington Post. “I’m not saying I’m never drinking again, but for now just mostly being healthy. I’ve got a killer gym in my house and I can spend time working out. I’m interested in doing a lot of different things in my life – including football – but, right now, I’m just exploring options and waiting to see what the future holds.”
