That’s Browns’ beat reporter Mary Kay Cabot for the Plain Dealer, breaking the story that Johnny Football is going to rehab.
According to Cabot, Manziel’s “friend and advisor” Brad Beckworth confirmed that he entered treatment on Wednesday and “knows there are areas in which he needs to improve in order to be a better family member, friend and teammate and he thought the off-season was the right time to take this step.”
It’s an interesting turn of events, considering Manziel’s season ended with him missing a walk through allegedly due to a night of partying. Perhaps he’s trying to save some face and appear he’s taking his NFL career seriously, or maybe he really has a problem he’s looking to address. Only time will tell, as Manziel’s shown a knack for saying all the right things while repeatedly fucking up.
Actions speak louder than words, so we’ll wait and see where this leads Manziel.
For now, it’s time to wish Manziel well and save the cynicism until his next transgression.
