The 2012 Heisman Memorial Trophy winner was one of the most electrifying players the college football world had ever seen. His off the field party lifestyle made everyone either love him or hate him. There was no in-between. Johnny Football, as he came to be known, was the first Freshman to win the Heisman for the Texas A&M Aggies. Johnny had a very good sophomore season as well before heading off to the NFL where the Cleveland Browns picked him #22 overall. In Cleveland, he had a few games where he looked like he might just do something with his NFL career but his bad habits got the best of him once and for all and now it looks like he just may never step foot on an NFL field ever again. I guess that still remains to be seen though. But what a disappointment man. Seriously.
