Johnny Manziel finally emerges in an unlikely place; will it help his NFL chances?
The former Cleveland Browns quarterback is back at Texas A&M and taking classes
If you had to pick one place for Johnny Manziel to re-emerge, the last place you'd probably choose would be "on an NFL roster." A close second would be "in a classroom."
But that's precisely where Manziel is hanging out these days, because, according to the Dallas Morning News, he is back on campus at Texas A&M and taking classes. Manziel has apparently enrolled in classes and is listed as a senior at the college.
Since he left after just two years, he wasn't able to complete his degree in "recreation, parks and tourism sciences."
Manziel was drafted No. 22 overall by the Browns to much fanfare, but his career flamed out badly in Cleveland, and he was eventually released by the Browns this offseason as a new regime rebooted the franchise.
The former Aggies star was seen partying in Cabo and Los Angeles during much of the summer and, despite a domestic violence case looming and a four-game suspension awaiting him if he returns to the NFL, Manziel has promised to clean up his act and get back into football.
We haven't heard much from Manziel in the past few months, except for his promise that his career can't end like this.
No telling how well his time in College Station will go -- he wasn't exactly a book nerd when he was on campus the first time. But there's a decent chance he'll at least have a better support group around him in his old stomping grounds.
Going back to school and getting a degree would be a positive step for his future as well.
