Ep14: Former NFL quarterback Ryan Leaf brings it to Jerome
Former quarterback Ryan Leaf, the No. 2 pick in the 1998 NFL Draft, brought it to Jerome in a different tone than any prior episode. Addiction is a serious subject. As per usual, there was some laughter, and sports – Leaf is the most famous quarterback from Montana, not the Texans Brock Osweiler – but Leaf’s tale of addiction and recovery doesn’t lend itself to many jokes. He talks about how he broke into homes searching for pills and how he attempted suicide. “I wanted to die,” he said. “If I couldn’t be high … then I'd want to be dead.” Leaf said he sees himself in fast-living Johnny Manziel, and hopes Manziel learns from his life, his mistakes. Leaf and Joni Ogle, the executive director of Transcend Texas who was on the podcast as well, hope his words will change lives. “I just want to help,” he said. “I just want to be a good human being and being that usually means you’re helping people.”
