Manziel checks out of rehab to join the Browns

According to ESPN’s Jeremy Fowler, former Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel was released from rehab today.  Family attorney, Brad Breckworth, said that Manziel checked into the rehab facility in order to “be a better family member, friend and teammate.”

Manziel is expected to begin off-season training with the Browns in the next few weeks. Sources close to Manziel have said that he is “doing great” and is excited to get back on the field.

There have been reports that Eagles head coach Chip Kelly wanted Manziel to play for him at Oregon. Manziel had previously committed to Oregon in the summer of 2010. However, he eventually decommitted and decided ultimately on Texas A&M. Rumors have been circulating that Kelly and the Eagles are looking to trade for Manziel. It has also been reported that the Browns are looking to trade up in the draft for Marcus Mariota.

If Manziel stays on the Browns roster, he will compete for the starting quarterback job with Josh McCown and potentially a draft pick, if the Browns draft a quarterback.

Browns head coach Mike Pettine has been supportive of Manziel’s decision to receive treatment.

“For his football life to get it where it needs to be, he needs to get his personal life where it needs to be,” Pettine said. “This takes precedence, so however long of time he needs, the football will be there when he gets out.”

Former Buccaneers center Randy Grimes, who now works as an interventionist at Behavioral Health of the Palm Beaches, discussed Manziel in a phone interview with USA Today Sports.

“I think the Browns are going to see a different person when he gets back in that locker room. He’s going to have more self-awareness, he’s going to just be a different Johnny Manziel,” Grimes said. “And I look forward to seeing who that guy is when he comes back after going through this process.”
