Johnny Manziel, the ex-NFL quarterback, is known as one of the largest draft failures in league history, and just the mention of his name would potentially cause Cleveland Browns fans to exhale deeply.

The Browns selected him in the first round in 2014, but after two unfinished seasons, his NFL career was terminated.

The Texas A&M product and Lone Star State native shared with Pro Football Hall of Famer Shannon Sharpe on “Club Shay Shay” that he wished for the Dallas Cowboys to pick him, but he is now relieved it didn’t happen.

While at Texas A&M, Manziel seemed to be a top NFL prospect, but some were cautious of him because of his demeanor and off-the-field problems and occurrences.

His initial season in the pros was seen as a major letdown, and he appeared in only five games, completing 51.4% of his pass attempts and securing just 175 passing yards and zero passing touchdowns while tossing two interceptions.

Following an equally disappointing 2015 season, the Browns let him go.

Manziel has had a couple of stints in other professional football leagues, including the CFL, since departing from Cleveland, and it currently appears that his football career is definitely in the past.

There are cases of pro athletes who were disappointments because they couldn’t overcome their own obstacles, but they conquered their struggles and later became somewhat of a guide to other athletes.
