Johnny Manziel apologizes to fans, says he’ll be back
Former Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel apologized to Texas A&M fans on Monday and promised that his NFL career is not over.
The 23-year-old Heisman Trophy winner tweeted out a message in response to a Texas A&M blog’s Twitter account, saying that he is truly sorry and an Aggie for life. Earlier in the day, the blog tweeted a video of Manziel scoring a touchdown against UTEP in 2013.
Since being drafted by the Browns in 2014, Manziel has made headlines for his off-the-field behavior rather than his quarterback play.
Recently, Manziel has spent the off-season partying in Mexico and Las Vegas, drawing concern from his family and former coaches. In April, he was indicted on a misdemeanor assault charge after being accused of hitting and threatening his ex-girlfriend.
Manziel also posted a message on Instagram saying that he’ll return to football and that he’s not hiding from fans.
Manziel was released by the Browns at the beginning of the off-season after playing two seasons in Cleveland.
In eight NFL starts, Manziel has a 2–6 record, throwing for 1,500 yards, seven touchdowns and five interceptions.
He won the Heisman in 2012 as a redshirt freshman at Texas A&M.
