Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel entered rehab in late January. Per multiple reports, Manziel’s time in rehab has now ended.
The move comes with more than a week until the Browns open their offseason program, which allows players to spend up to four hours per day in the facility, working out and attending classroom instructions.
With the Browns reportedly interested in trading up for quarterback Marcus Mariota, it’s entirely possible that the Browns have moved on from Manziel. But as long as he’s on the roster, he has a chance to redeem himself. And with his salary for 2015 fully guaranteed and presumably no one inclined to trade for him, Manziel will get that chance.
From a football perspective, the key for Manziel will be to commit himself fully and completely to football. From a personal perspective, the bigger challenge will be to stay on the path that he started via more than two months in rehab.
