A day after troubled former Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel vowed to TMZ that he would get sober on July 1, he was caught in Cabo San Lucus smoking a “suspicious looking cigarette” after reportedly stopping by a Mexican pharmacy.

During his Mexico vacation this week, Manziel had to explain that he did not know a woman, who is staying in the same mansion as he is during his vacation, who posted what appeared to be photos of drugs on social media.
Since Manziel was released by the Browns due to his heavy partying and numerous off-field issues, he has gotten into even more trouble. Since March, Manziel has reportedly been “charged with misdemeanor assault, has been in two car accidents and has allegedly trashed a luxury home in the Hollywood hills, for which he’s being sued.” His lead attorney who was representing him in his domestic violence case left after he accidentally sent a text meant for Manziel’s legal team to an Associated Press reporter in which he questioned whether Manziel could stay sober.
Manziel’s own father recently told ESPN that his son is a “druggie” and “needs help.”
The former Texas A&M star has vowed to make a comeback in the NFL this year, but many observers have wondered why a team would take a chance on a quarterback who cares more about partying than studying film and becoming a great quarterback/leader.
One more day until Manziel’s self-imposed deadline to get sober.
