Since profitable the Heisman Trophy in 2012 Manziel’s soccer profession has been a catastrophe. He had an up-and-down 2013 season at Texas A&M blended in with a ton of off-field points. Then the Cleveland Browns drafted him within the first-round of the 2014 NFL Draft and…nicely, that was the spotlight of his skilled profession.
In two seasons with the Browns he performed in 15 video games and accomplished 57.zero p.c of his passes, for 1,675 yards, with seven touchdowns and 7 interceptions. He quarterback score over that point was a brutal 74.four and, given his repeatedly disciplinary points, was completely not definitely worth the headache.
He spent the 2018 season with the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Soccer League and was equally horrible. In eight video games he accomplished 64.2 p.c of his passes, for 1,290 yards, with 5 touchdowns and 7 interceptions. He was then launched and banned from the CFL for violating his contract.
Manziel’s likelihood with the AAF is probably going his final in skilled soccer. He’s burned so many bridges there are few left on the market who’ve any persistence for his antics. He’s merely not ok at soccer to drag the form of crap he does.
