Johnny Manziel Releases Statement After Rehab Stint
Bob Donnan-USA TODAY Sports
Browns QB Johnny Manziel released this statement following his stint in rehab, per the Cleveland ’s Twitter account...

“I would like to thank my family, friends, the Browns organization, my teammates, and Browns fans everywhere, for your patience, understanding, and support during my stay at Caron. The doctors and staff have been amazing and what I’ve learned in the last couple of months has been tremendous. I owe private apologies to a lot of people that I disappointed but a very public one to the Browns organization and the fans that I let down. I take full responsibility for my actions and it’s my intention to work very 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. 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. 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. Most of you have been considerate about that and I thank you for it. 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.”
Is he finally NFL ready? Well, have to wait and see.

I recall this tweet during last years draft:

@FO_ScottKacsmar: Browns took Brady Quinn 22nd overall, Brandon Weeden 22nd overall, and now can it be Johnny Football at 22nd overall? Cursed Browns. #FOAud

I hope he pulls it together, getting sober is hard, but the rewards are great

That's it . . . as the Zen master said, "we'll see!"

Even if he "fails miserably" he still will have accomplished more than most. Especially "PolyPusher86"

He's always been a douche. I hope he fails, miserably.
