Johnny Manziel's career at the Cleveland Browns is in major doubt after a turbulent rookie season ended with the former Texas A&M star checking himself into rehab.
Manziel was not only poor on the field, he was poor off the field too. The party life that he enjoyed during his college years was brought to the NFL, and in the end it forced him over the edge.
A stint in a rehab facility specialising in alcohol and drug abuse may have benefited Manziel, but nonetheless the Browns are still looking for a long-term quarterback option in case Manziel doesn't pan out.

Browns make draft related decision
Cleveland brought in Josh McCown, formerly of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and the Chicago Bears, to lead their offense in the short-term, but there is still a sense that Manziel may be able to take over in the long-term.
However, don't think for one second that the Browns are banking on this, which has been further confirmed by the fact that Cleveland worked out quarterback draft prospect Garrett Grayson this week, according to ProFootballTalk.
"The Browns visited Colorado State and had a private workout with Grayson, Mary Kay Cabot of Cleveland.com reports," ProFootballTalk reported.
"The Browns own the No. 12 and No. 19 picks in the first round, and there’s been talk that they could package those picks to move up and draft Mariota.
"But if that doesn’t work out, Grayson would likely be available with their second-round pick, No. 43 overall."
Good move for Browns?
Grayson had an excellent season at Colorado State in his last year in college football in the Mountain West. However, many draft experts still don't see him as a passer in the NFL.
Any quarterback being worked out by the Browns should worry Manziel a little. After all, he has just been in rehab and his position as the Browns' back-up for 2015 is far from assured.
However, even if the Browns select Garrett Grayson, Manziel will still be with Cleveland, and it's likely that Grayson would only be battling for a lower depth chart role at the Browns if selected by the AFC North team in this year's draft.
