NEW YORK (CBS SPORTS) - According to multiple reports, former Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel is facing a four-game suspension from the NFL if he is able to make it back onto a team's roster. The suspension is for a violation of the league's substance-abuse policy.

The NFL is clearly worried about the former first-round pick and said as much earlier this week. The public display of not giving a single care in the world has been pretty blatant -- Manziel traveled to Cabo in a Josh Gordon Browns jersey and is claiming to go "completely sober" on Friday, July 1 before beginning a comeback to the NFL.
Needless to say, the suspension creates another major roadblock for Manziel.

It was just earlier this week that an attorney handling Manziel's domestic violence case here in North Texas resigned. Days before stepping down Bob Hinton had inadvertently sent a text message to the Associated Press indicating he had doubts about Manziel's ability to stay drug free.
