Johnny Manziel's father worried son's life in jeopardy, refused twice to go back to rehab

Troubled Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel's father is worried about him. The NFL player has twice declined to go back to rehab in the next week.
"I truly believe if they can't get him help, he won't live to see his 24th birthday," Paul Manziel told The Dallas Morning News.
Meanwhile, Manziel, who was accused of beating his former girlfriend, Colleen Crowley, hasn't been charged with a crime and the case is closed. However, his agent, Erik Burkhardt, has dropped him as a client. "It is with deep regret that after several emotional and very personal discussions with his family, his doctors, and my client himself, I have made the decision to terminate my professional relationship with Johnny Manziel. Though I will remain a friend and Johnny supporter and he knows I have worked tirelessly to arrange a number of professional options for him to continue to pursue, it has become painfully obvious that his future rests solely in his own hands. His family and I have gone to great lengths to outline the steps we feel he must take to get his life in order. Accountability is the foundation of any relationship, and without it, the function of my work is counterproductive."
