IFWT_Brandon Marshall

Brandon Marshall is no stranger to publicly going through serious issues.  The New York Jets wide receiver was diagnosed with borderline personality disorder and went through treatment, turning his life and career around.  Now he’s asking everyone to back off Johnny Manziel, claiming he is suffering from an illness and needs help and support before it’s too late.

Marshall appeared on “Whitlock’s House Party By the Bay” on FS1 Wednesday and said whatever Manziel is suffering from is a disease that needs to be treated.

Marshall says the pressures of the NFL can exacerbate issues and says he knows firsthand about what it’s like to suffer from mental illness.

But the key, Brandon says, is Johnny needs to focus on treatment the same way he would prepare for an NFL game — with 100% of his energy because that’s what worked for him.

For the record, Manziel got treatment before the 2015 season but never disclosed exactly what he was being treated for, although reports say it was for alcohol.
