Hall of Fame running back Emmitt Smith believes Johnny Manziel has a decision to make: The NFL or the nightlife he’s been so openly fond of.

The NFL’s All-Time Leading Rusher delivered that message last Friday on an edition of PFT Live from Radio Row in San Francisco, and insists it is that simple.

… It’s either the nightlife or his career. Just that simple,” Smith said. “I think every player comes to that crossroad. It’s either the nightlife, the streets, or your career. I chose my career and I think a lot of players choose their career as well. Some don’t. He needs to get it. He may be a guy that already has enough, if you will, but you have to be hungry.
