Even Johnny Manziel says he is doing his part to help slow the spread of coronavirus.
Earlier this week, the former Browns quarterback made a plea to his social media followers, while poking fun at his off-field antics.
“If I can stay out of the club, anyone can quarantine,” the 27-year-old wrote Tuesday on his Instagram story.
In response to the coronavirus outbreak, the World Health Organization has advised social distancing, maintaining “at least 1 meter (3 feet) distance between yourself and anyone who is coughing or sneezing.”
The hard-partying Manziel, a previous Heisman Trophy winner, was drafted by the Browns in 2014. His two-year stint in Cleveland was heavily overshadowed by personal struggles, including his battle with substance abuse.
In 2018, Manziel revealed his bipolar diagnosis. That same year, he attempted to revive his professional football career, joining the Hamilton Tiger-Cats of the CFL. He was later banned from the league. Last year, he joined the Alliance of American Football league before its collapse.
