Johnny Manziel Enters Rehab
Everyone knew Johnny Manziel liked to party, but it’s difficult to say anyone knew it was this bad. Per Cleveland.com, Manziel’s partying has gotten out of control so badly that it’s caused him to check into a treatment facility.
Word broke about Manziel’s decisions to enter rehab on Monday morning, although reports suggest Manziel had initially checked into the facility on Wednesday. A release for the Browns displayed support for the franchise’s young quarterback, as GM Ray Farmer said the team “will fully support” the 22-year old and that they respect his “initiative” in checking himself into rehab to work on himself.
Manziel has had a roller coaster ride since declaring for last year’s NFL Draft, one that has included rolled up dollar bills, swans and a litany of photographs online showing a cocky kid having way too much fun.
With Manziel’s public cry for help, it looks like he could be well on his way to stopping the craziness from totally spiraling out of control.
Browns and NFL fans alike saw the lingering effects of Manziel’s off field behavior, which bled into the season in the form of an ill-prepared rookie passer. Once handed the starting gig in week 15, Manziel looked completely clueless en route to a horrific debut against the Cincinnati Bengals. Manziel later vowed to live by actions more than words, and it’s possible this latest news is the first real step in that process.
It’s anyone’s guess if Manziel’s rehab stint will actually help him mature and get his career back on track, and it’s understandable that many may initially deem it as nothing more than a smokescreen. Regardless, Manziel appeared to have a problem with alcohol and possibly even drugs, and it looks like he is at least acknowledging it.
Manziel going to rehab won’t guarantee him the Cleveland Browns starting quarterback job in 2015, but it certainly can’t hurt. A Johnny Manziel with a sober mind and more discipline and direction can only get better, both on and off the field.
