Leaf has also battled substance abuse, but unlike Manziel, he struggled more with opiate painkiller addiction with alcohol and drug abuse problems have come to light only after his speeldae was over.

“I was right to say that my drug use was the reason why I played bad, but I did not start drug use until after I retire,” Leaf has Patrick. “So I do not about the blame that. I just do not play well, so this is another dynamic that I do not know.”

“What happened last year, I thought it was the greatest thing,” Leaf said, referring to how Manziel checked himself into a rehab facility.

“Imagine that I would have to – just go get behavioral counseling when I fall into my second year and things off the rails,” says Leaf. “Sometimes, things just spiral for maybe about a year. You’ve gotta be out of football for a year. You’ve gotta get things right.”

Leaf has only three seasons with the Chargers for the team on him after several incidents of bad behavior. He has a reputation for having a poor work ethic, and he quickly lost the support of his coaches and teammates.
