Johnny Manziel enters treatment facility

Cleveland Browns quarterback and former Texas A&M star Johnny Manziel has entered a treatment facility.

A source tells FOX Sports that Manziel entered the facility last week, reportedly on Wednesday, January 28.

Brad Beckworth, a friend and advisor to Johnny Manziel and his family, has also confirmed to FOX Sports that Johnny entered treatment, saying: "Johnny knows there are areas in which he needs to improve in order to be a better family member, friend and teammate and he thought the off-season was the right time to take this step. On behalf of Johnny and his family, we're asking for privacy until he rejoins the team in Cleveland."

Browns general manager Ray Farmer also issued a statement Monday obtained by FOX Sports that reads:

"We respect Johnny's initiative in this decision and will fully support him throughout this process. Our players' health and well-being will always be of the utmost importance to the Cleveland Browns. We continually strive to create a supportive environment and provide the appropriate resources, with our foremost focus being on the individual and not just the football player. Johnny's privacy will be respected by us during this very important period and we hope that others will do the same."
