Former Texas A&M and Cleveland Browns quarterback (and also, TMZ front page magnet) Johnny Manziel went on a brief tweetstorm Thursday afternoon, clarifying some details about his autograph signing during Super Bowl week and seemingly attempting to repent for some of his past missteps.
First, Manziel shot down the rumor that he would be charging $50 for a selfie during the autograph session (though he did nothing to debunk the $99 charge for an autograph).
Then he explained why he was doing the signing – to thank (I guess?) those who stood by him during his numerous hard times.
He claimed he was happy (finally).
Manziel then admitted he was a “douche” during 2016, and also acknowledged his drinking.
He signed off with a somewhat inspirational note.
This is all well and good, and we wish Manziel nothing but the best.
However, his pinned tweet from last April lets us know we’ve been down this road before.
The Johnny Manziel saga is just sad at this point. Hopefully, he really, truly means what he says, and won’t be a tabloid mainstay anymore.
