“He knows he’s hit rock bottom and he’s giving himself a year to get sober and get ready for football. He wants to play again. He really wants to turn things around and make people proud of him again. It’s not going to end this way. He really wants to make that effort. He knows what he’s gifted with. The spotlight got to him,” the source told Page Six(SLIDESHOW: These Are The Sexiest Photos Of Ronda Rousey On The Internet)
