Johnny Manziel did not have a good rookie season in the NFL. The Cleveland Browns quarterback made a disastrous start to his NFL career, and his problems got even worse this offseason.

Known as a party animal in college, Manziel brought that lifestyle to the NFL, something which eventually forced him into rehab earlier this offseason.

The Browns signal caller is now out of rehab and ready to gain back the trust of his teammates ahead of the new season.

Praying for Manziel 

Some say that Manziel doesn't need to prove anything to his teammates, but others like the Browns' Karlos Dansby acknowledge that Manziel was troubled last season, and he says he's anxious to see how rehab changes Manziel, with the former Cardinals star hoping it will change Manziel for the better.

"I’m anxious to see what he does and how he comes out," Dansby explained, according to ProFootballTalk.

"I know it’s going to make him a better man, and that’s all I’m worried about is him being a better man at the end of the day. Everything else will take care of itself.”

Earned respect

Dansby believes that Manziel showed he is growing up as a man by taking the decision to go to rehab.

The middle linebacker explained that the move by Manziel has made him respect the young quarterback even more, and he hopes that the signal caller will be able to shed the distractions that were hindering him last season.

“I just knew it was distracting his game. It wasn’t allowing him to be himself out on the field. It wasn’t allowing him to express himself the way we all have seen him play at the collegiate level," Dansby added.

“Whatever he was dealing with was suppressing him. So him being able to check himself in and try to get that relief, I think it was huge.

“It took a lot for him to take that step, and for him to make that step shows that he’s maturing a lot as a man."
