Controversial NFL quarterback Johnny Manziel apologized to his fans on social media and made a promise that he will return to the league in the future. The former Cleveland Browns quarterback had a turbulent NFL career because of his off the field antics.
Manziel, who was a former Heisman Trophy winner in college football and Texas A&M star, is currently a free agent in the NFL after being cut by the Browns earlier this year.
Johnny Manziel took to Twitter Monday responding to a post by a fan.

Manziel has been involved in many NFL rumors this offseason particularly on his forced retirement because of alcoholism and alleged drug use problems.
Late in April, Manziel also admitted to his mistakes in another tweet when he also thanked the people who have supported him despite the off the field struggles.
“Made plenty of mistakes along the way, and have a lot I’d do differently. To all my family and real friends who have stuck by me…THANK YOU,” Manziel posted on Twitter on April 29.
Also on Monday, Manziel promised that he will “be back” in the NFL “in time”.
“You all write about a day in my life and what goes on…here it is. No secrets, no hiding, I’m not what you read about. I’ll be back… In time. It can’t end like this…it won’t. I love you all even though your comments suck,” Manziel posted on Instagram.
Johnny Manziel has had a great college career but it never translated to professional football. In two seasons for the Browns, he saw limited time on the field playing a total of 14 games with 1,675 passing yards (147 of 258 passes) with 7 touchdowns and 7 interceptions.
