It's been about three weeks now since Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel entered a rehab facility to address some personal issues. And while it's still unclear what kind of treatment he's been receiving, his head coach Mike Pettine says that he's doing well. Pettine spoke with reporters at the NFL Combine earlier today and fielded questions about Manziel's condition.
"He's in a much better place now than before he went in," said Pettine, who revealed that he visited Manziel recently. "He's very determined to come out of it in a much better way."
Pettine also revealed that, while the Browns are still hoping that Manziel will be their quarterback of the future, they're taking a good, hard look at their quarterback options this offseason in the event that Manziel won't be ready to go once the season starts. That could include re-signing Brian Hoyer, who started almost every game for the Browns last season, or it could include drafting a quarterback or signing someone through free agency. Either way, they're going to continue to back Manziel.
"Obviously he has our full support," Pettine said.
