I’ve had a soft spot for Dexter Manley ever since he tried to choke me out on the set of his TV show before attempting to show me how to snap a football and talking about eating breakfast naked and bedding 10 women in a single day.

But anyone who knows anything about Manley knows that all the schtick covers up a whole lot of serious stuff. HBO Real Sports goes after the serious stuff in its latest edition, premiering Tuesday at 10 and then replaying all month. Program description:

Armen Keteyian reconnects with the once-feared pass rusher to discuss his road from a post-NFL life filled with drugs to his new life of sobriety and tranquility.

We have a two-minute trailer above.
