Johnny Football to Rehab

Browns beat writer Mary Kay Cabot has tweeted a statement from the Cleveland Browns suggesting that quarterback Johnny Manziel has entered "treatment" for various off-field ailments. 

"Brad Beckworth, friend and advisor to Manziel and his family, has confirmed that Johnny entered treatment on Wednesday," the statement read.

"Johnny knows that 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. On behalf of Johnny and his family, we're asking for privacy until he rejoins the team in Cleveland." 

No word yet on where Manziel's convalescing or what exactly he's in treatment for, but good luck on the privacy front.
