Johnny Manziel's future with the Cleveland Browns and in football is well and truly up in the air.

The former college football prodigy is now in rehab after a terrible rookie season, and many question whether he will ever be able to recover from this devastating dent to his reputation.

Furthermore, the Cleveland Browns decision to sign veteran quarterback Josh McCown has led to many experts signalling this as the beginning of the end for Manziel.

However, with some somewhat surprising comments at the week, new quarterback and likely starter for 2015, Josh McCown, declared that he is going to do all he can to teach and improve Manziel.

"Johnny is a person, and every person that I come across has value to me and they matter, and so I want to help him as much as I can with all parts of it, but to grow as a person and as a player and to help him go on and have a fruitful career," McCown explained, reported

The signing of McCown by the Browns may well be a blessing in disguise for Manziel. The 35-year-old quarterback is the perfect player to keep the seat warm while Manziel learns more about the NFL and the Browns, before he takes one last swipe at potential stardom.

And in McCown, Manziel has the perfect tutor to learn off in the coming years. A player who has never worried too much about whether he's the man and has always focused more on what's best for the team.

"Just life in general is too short to go through it alone or just looking out for yourself all the time. So if you can give up yourself to others to help someone else in their journey, I just think you'll find so much more peace in life. So that's my approach when I head into a quarterback room. It's just what can I give back to the guys around me to help us be better? Because ultimately it's going to help our team."

It remains to be seen whether or not Johnny Manziel can sort his life out enough to become a starter for the Browns in the future. Watch this space.
