Johnny Manziel Reveals the Reason For His 40-Pound Weight Loss and No One is Surprised

Johnny Manziel visited Club Shay Shay on Feb. 21 to talk about his NFL career with Shannon Sharpe. He opened up about his struggles off the field during his time with the Browns.

Despite rehab efforts, his personal issues took a toll on him physically.

In January 2016, Manziel was seen in a Las Vegas casino while the Browns had their season finale. By March, the team let him go.

He revealed to Sharpe, "I was 210 pounds when I left Cleveland." His weight dropped to 170 pounds after spending more time in Vegas.

Manziel bluntly explained the weight loss, "You’re on a strict diet of blow."

Manziel has been candid about his drug use before, notably in his 2023 Netflix documentary, Johnny Football.

He reflected on how his release from the Browns led him to a downward spiral. "The people closest to me were in the mindset of 'We have to let him go,'" Manziel recalled.

He felt determined to prove them wrong, saying, "I'm gonna rub this whole thing in your f--king face." He aimed to shock even more, "'You think you've seen something now? You haven't seen s--t yet.'"
