Johnny Manziel: I promise to work very hard to regain trust, respect
by Igor Mello |

Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel released a statement thanking his teammates, fans and the organization for their patience with him. Manziel was released Saturday from a rehab facility after undergoing more than 10 weeks of treatment for unspecified issues. In his statement published on the Browns' official website, Manziel promised to "work very hard to regain everyone's trust and respect."

"I understand that will take time and will only happen through what I do and not what I say. I also understand there’s a lot of curiosity about this but anyone who has a friend or family-member that’s been through things like this knows it’s an ongoing process. I’m going to continue to ask folks to try to respect my privacy as I determine to what degree I am comfortable talking about a subject which I consider very personal."

Manziel was placed on injured reserve after suffering a hamstring injury in Week 16 of his first year in the NFL. The 2012 Heisman Trophy winner from Texas A&M finished a turbulent rookie season with 175 passing yards and a 42.0 quarterback rating. He also had two interceptions and one fumble lost.

The Browns added Josh McCown via free agency, and could be in the market for a quarterback in the NFL Draft. Cleveland holds the No. 12 and No. 19 overall picks in the first round of April's draft.

Browns OLB Mingo: Next year will be 'a different story'
by Marty Gitlin |

Outside linebacker Barkevious Mingo, among the latest in a long list of Browns first-round draft disappointments, is vowing to shed that tag in 2015.

"Next year's going to be a different story," he told ESPN.

Mingo has just three sacks in his last 23 games. He has seven in two seasons. The nearly $7 million he has been paid during that time - not including his signing bonus - is looking like a bad deal. But the super-athletic Mingo believes he can turn it into a good deal by living up to his potential.

First things first. He must play without pain, which is what a labrum injury that required offseason arthroscopic surgery caused in 2014. Mingo anticipates being "pretty close to all go" in workouts.

"Just waiting on final word from the trainers," he said. "As a competitor, you're going to always say you feel good. You can have a broken leg and I'm good enough to play. I felt like for the most part last year I was good enough to play. After the games, it was a different story. ... The season's over, now I have a lot of rest and got it fixed."

Mingo did manage to contribute to 42 tackles in 2014 for the second straight season.
