Cleveland Browns QB, Manziel, was sent to a drug and alcohol treatment facility in hopes to become a “better family member, friend and teammate,” in late January. The exact treatment is unknown but close family friends have kept press updated saying that he was “doing great.” During his stay, Manziel was allowed to leave and re-enter the facility as he recently traveled to Louisiana for a golfing trip with family and has been to a hospital to visit with patients. He was also granted the ability to make phone calls and receive letters from relatives and friends.
Head coach, Mike Pettine, is glad to have Manziel back but has always been adamant of his health taking precendence to football. “For his football life to get it where it needs to be, he needs to get the personal life where it needs to be,” Pettine said last month. But the new-and-improved “Johnny Football” might not be coming back to a guaranteed spot. He will likely be competing with Josh McCown, who signed a three-year, $14million contract with the Browns in February.
Manziel is expected to be at offseason workouts starting April 20.
