>>Johnny Manziel Leaves Rehab, Apologizes

Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel issued a statement Friday, offering an apology and thanks to fans, teammates and the organization for support during his recent stay at a treatment facility.

Manziel spent more than two months at a rehab center, undergoing treatment for an undisclosed substance problem. He reportedly entered in late January before exiting last week.

The former Heisman Trophy winner issued a statement through the Browns on Friday.

"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," said Manziel on Friday. "The doctors and staff have been amazing and what I've learned in the last couple of months has been tremendous. 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 had a rough rookie season after being selected with the 22nd overall pick in last year's draft, drawing criticism for his poor play and for his behavior on and off the field.

"I take full responsibility for my actions and it's my intention to work very hard to regain everyone's trust and respect," Manziel continued. "I understand that will take time and will only happen through what I do and not what I say."
