Johnny Manziel with the Cleveland Browns Johnny Manziel with the Cleveland Browns

Former Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel was one of the most spectacular first-round busts in NFL history.

The Browns took a chance on Manziel after he won a Heisman Trophy with the Texas A&M Aggies in college, but the franchise released him before the expiration of his rookie deal, and Manziel never caught on with another team.

Speaking on his episode of Netflix’s Untold documentary series, Manziel got brutally honest about his mental state following his release from the Browns in 2016. He said he purchased a gun with the intent of ending his life.

“I had planned to do everything I wanted to do at that point in my life, spend as much money as I possibly could and then my plan was to take my life,” Manziel said in his episode, according to the Dallas Morning News. “I wanted to get as bad as humanly possible to where it made sense, and it made it seem like an excuse and an out for me.”

Manziel revealed he went on a “$5 million bender” but his gun malfunctioned when he pulled the trigger.

“Still to this day, don’t know what happened, but the gun just clicked on me,” he said. “I couldn’t fix what I had done … with the NFL, with A&M, everything at that point in time. … The ride was over.”

The newest episode of Untold drops August 8th.
