Johnny Manziel : Browns QB Releases Statement Regarding Stint in Rehab

Johnny Manziel released a statement thanking his teammates, fans and the organization for their patience with him.

Johnny Manziel acknowledged that he had disappointed many people close to him and said he planned to work hard to regain everyone’s trust and respect. “I understand that will take time and will only happen through what I do and not what I say,” he said in the statement.

In January Johnny Manziel entered rehab at Caron, a treatment center in Pennsylvania that specializes in drug and alcohol issues. The decision followed a rookie season in which he performed poorly on the field and was involved in a number of off-the-field incidents involving drinking and partying. “I also understand there’s a lot of curiosity about this but anyone who has a friend or family member that’s been through things like this knows it’s an ongoing process,” he said, referring to his stint in rehab. “I’m going to continue to ask folks to try to respect my privacy as I determine to what degree I am comfortable talking about a subject which I consider very personal.”

Johnny Manziel is expected to rejoin Browns team practices next week. “I look forward to seeing my teammates next week and focusing on football and my desire to be the best possible player, teammate, and man that I can be,” he said.

    Has to be a hell of a thing to sit down at 21-22 years old and say, “Oh my god, I am an alcoholic…” Hope he gets that straightened out in his life. Doubtful he will ever be a good NFL QB.
