Johnny Manziel’s father fears for his son, tried to get him into rehab

It’s one thing to be cut by a team, or even an agent.

But when your own flesh and blood begin to worry about you, it’s a whole different sign.

According to Kate Hairopoulos of the Dallas Morning News, quarterback Johnny Manziel’s family is concerned for his well-being, after he twice declined trips to rehab facilities in the last week.

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

Earlier in the day, his agent parted ways with him, and the Browns have effectively washed their hands of the former first-rounder.

But the family has different concerns, trying to get him into a pair of Texas rehab facilities. Paul Manzeil tried to get Johnny to go to the Enterhealth Ranch facility in Van Alstyne. Then they tried to have him admitted to Carrollton Springs Hospital, but he was allowed to leave there.

Manziel was born on December 6, 1992.
