Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel spent part of the past week working with Jon Gruden on film work and mechanics in Tampa, reports ESPN. Charlie Campbell of first reported the news.

Gruden, a former head coach of the Oakland Raiders and Tampa Bay Buccaneers, previously worked with Manziel before the 2014 NFL draft as part of his “QB Camp” on ESPN.

Last month, Manziel spoke to reporters for the first time since last season ended and called his rookie year in the NFL a “disaster.” He also announced that he is retiring his signature “money sign.”

Manziel spent 10 weeks at a Pennsylvania treatment facility earlier this year for an undisclosed issue, but was a participant through the team’s off-season training program.

The 22-year-old started two games last season and appeared in five overall, completing 18-of-35 passes for 175 yards with two interceptions and one rushing touchdown. 

In June, Bengals defensive coordinator Paul Guenther said that Manziel “needs more time” before anyone closes the book on his NFL career.

Browns training camp is set to begin on July 30 in Berea, Ohio.
