Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel has apologized to the team and Browns fans for his actions during his rookie season, which was largely unsuccessful.
“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,” Manziel said in a statement.
Manziel is notorious for partying, even during the season, and it came back to haunt him as he was unable to win the starting job over Brian Hoyer.
Although he eventually got his chance, Manziel struggled in his embarrassing first start as the Browns were shut out, 30-0, by the Cincinnati Bengals.
Manziel was also late for treatment on his injured hamstring toward the end of the season, and this allegedly stemmed from him partying the night before.
After the season ended, Manziel checked into rehab in order to become a better family member, friend and teammate.
Manziel will be back with the Browns in time for the beginning of training camp, and he will look to take advantage of the departure of Brian Hoyer and redeem his reputation.
