Former Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel enrolled at Texas A&M, reports say
COLLEGE STATION, Texas– Former Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel is taking classes again at Texas A&M University, several news outlets reported on Monday.
Manziel was waived by the Browns in March and not signed to another team in the off season. The troubled former Heisman Trophy winner kept busy by traveling to Mexico and Hawaii, posting Instagram pictures of his dog and attending Drake concerts.
There is a Manziel listed on the college’s student directory, but the first name is spelled “Johnathan.” The student is listed as a recreation, park and tourism sciences major, and a senior with more than 90 hours.
A Texas grand jury indicted Manziel on a domestic violence charge in April for an alleged incident involving his then-girlfriend. Court documents said the ex-quarterback repeatedly hit Colleen Crowley and threatened to kill her while driving from a Dallas hotel to her Fort Worth apartment.
In June, the NFL announced that Manziel would be suspended for the first four games of the 2016 season for violating the league’s substance abuse policy.
“He’s a druggie. It’s not a secret that he’s a druggie. I don’t know what to say other than my son is a druggie and he needs help,” Manziel’s father, Paul, told ESPN this summer.
