Johnny Manziel returning next month?

Published 6 Comments

He may not have had the best rookie season last year, in fact he saw a very limited game time with Brian Hoyer claiming the starting quarterback role for the Cleveland Browns last year.

Manziel grabbed headlines ahead of the season by his off the field antics which raised a few questions over his NFL long-term career.

Manziel eventually won the battle against Hoyer and managed to claim the starting spot in Cleveland but was unfortunately taken out with an injury before he could finish his rookie year.

Manziel made even more headlines this off-season as he entered rehab in an attempt to return better than before next year.

The Browns have since lost Hoyer and signed Josh McCown so when Manziel does eventually return, he will still have some experienced competition.

Everyone has been wondering what Manziel will be like when he returns and if he will be back for off-season workouts with the Browns.

Well sources have now claimed that Manziel is set for an April return to Cleveland in order to take part in all of their off-season workouts.

Browns general manager Ray Farmer has confirmed the reports that they want Manziel back has also stated that it is in the hands of the people in charge of his rehab.

"I'm not the point person in that. So I would defer to those kind of controlling his care and let them decide what that looks likes." - Farmer on Manziel's return

Manziel will surely be hoping for a return prior to April 20th - when the Browns start their workouts so that he can make his claim to be the team's starter.

Manziel will be hoping to go into the 2015 NFL season as the Browns starting quarterback but it once again looks like head coach Mike Pettine has a tough choice to make.


Manziel was the most hyped up rookie last year but his first season in the NFL was very underwhelming.

In his first ever NFL start, Manziel led the Browns to a 30-0 loss to divisional rivals the Cincinnati Bengals.

Manziel would suffer a serious injury the next week against the Carolina Panthers and there would then be more questions left hanging over his future.
