Not easy at all, true. It's quite possible that the attention, adulation, and money he would be exposed to might encourage a relapse.

Wish him well and hope he can reassociate with the team down the road.

I grew up with those early-80s-Gibbs teams, and Manley was definitely one of my favorites. The guy was awesome and fun. He reminded me a lot of Arrington actually.

Manley's knockout hit on Danny White is tied for my favorite Redskins moment of the LAST 25 YEARS (tied with DG's punt return in Chi).

I recently saw an ESPN spotlight on Manley and he seems to be doing well now, but I guess you never really know when it comes to addiction. I wish him the best though.

PS - At the end of the ESPN segment, they quoted Manley as saying that his dream job would be to work with the Redskins. I hope he gets it one day.

Best of luck to him, I hope the franchise gets him employed and under the wing of some good mentors.

I would love to see Dexter in a PR capacity or something like that but let's remember the problems atteched to employing an addict.
Where can I find his book?

I love Dexter. He belongs in the HOF. Were it not for his personal problems he would be in there already.
