Browns coach Mike Pettine visited Johnny Manziel in the treatment facility the quarterback checked into last month to let him know the team is proud he decided to seek help and he has the Browns’ support.
“He’s in a much better place now than before he went in,” Pettine said Wednesday at the NFL Scouting Combine. “He’s very determined to come out of it in a much better way.”
Despite that support, Pettine acknowledged the Browns are looking for other options at quarterback.
“It’s a position we’re going to look to address,” he said. “All options are on the table.”
Given the importance of the position, the Browns are wise (yes, wise) to continue to try to add talent at quarterback. Manziel still may turn into a capable starter, but at this point the franchise can't count on that happening.
