Johnny Manziel: SUSPENDED By NFL For Drug Use!

Things just keep getting worse for Johnny Football.

Just one day after the troubled QB posted a photo of bags of cocaine online (with a caption clarifying that they belong to someone else), the NFL suspended the free agent for four games for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

TMZ broke the news moments ago, and details are scarce at the moment.

It's unclear if the suspension is tied to the photo that Manziel posted yesterday, but the league has stated that its decision is not the result of performance enhancing drugs.

A statement from the office of commissioner Roger Goodell adds that the punishment is also not tied to Manziel's ongoing legal woes.

Currently, Manziel is not signed to any NFL team after being cut by the Cleveland Browns back in March.

The Heisman Trophy winner is reportedly planning to make a career comeback, however, and this latest setback is unlikely to help his chances of landing a roster spot.

The only good news for Manziel is that the suspension does not roll over to next year.

So if he remains unemployed this season and lands a job in 2017, he will not be suspended for the first four games of next season.

It's a small bright spot, but good news has been hard to come by in the life of a 23-year-old former phenom, whose all-American nickname now seems cruelly ironic.

Several sources report that Manziel is currently living in a rented house in Mexico with upwards of 20 people.

The cocaine in the photo is said to belong to a female roommate with whom Manziel is only loosely affiliated.

Insiders tell TMZ that the former Brown plans to go "completely sober" beginning on Friday, July 1.

We imagine today's bad news might put a damper on his final bender.
