Johnny Manziel has gone to rehab

Former Texas A&M, and current Cleveland Brown, quarterback Johnny Manziel is entering treatment, per his publicist

Johnny Manziel checked into rehab on Wednesday, according to his publicist.

Yes, this isn't baseball news, but given how prominent Manziel is, and his ties to the state of Texas, I thought it was worth mentioning, and I'm sure y'all are going to have some things to say about it.

Manziel, of course, got the nickname "Johnny Football" while at Texas A&M, and was a first round draft pick of the Cleveland Browns last summer.  His initial season was a disappointment, however, and there was criticism about his partying lifestyle and his lack of preparation once he got the starting job in Cleveland.

Remarkable that things have gotten to this point with him -- hopefully, this will help him get things back on track.
