“I would like to thank my family, friends, the Browns organization, my teammates, and Browns fans everywhere, for your patience, understanding, and support during my stay at Caron,” Manziel said in a statement released by the Browns on Friday. “The doctors and staff have been amazing and what I’ve learned in the last couple of months has been tremendous.”

Manziel spent more than 10 weeks at Caron Pennsylvania, an alcohol and drug treatment center, after a rocky rookie year with the Browns, both off and on the field. He was released last week and popped up at a Texas Rangers game shortly after.
