CLEVELAND - Johnny Manziel has sought help to change his off-field lifestyle.Following a rough rookie season in the NFL, Manziel has entered a treatment program for unspecified reasons, an adviser for the Browns quarterback said in a statement released by the team on Monday.Johnny knows there are areas he needs to improve on to help him be a better family member, friend and teammate, so he decided to take this step in his life during the off-season, Manziel adviser Brad Beckworth said. Beckworth said the former Heisman Trophy winner entered the unnamed facility last week. He said Manziels family is asking for privacy until he rejoins the team.Beckworths statement did not indicate reasons for Manziel needing treatment. However, the 22-year-old QBs penchant for partying followed him from college into the pros and Manziels nightlife has been well-chronicled by both social and mainstream media.The location of the facility where Manziel is staying is not immediately known.Browns general manager Ray Farmer said in a statement that the team fully supports Manziel and respects his initiative in entering treatment. The team will respect Manziels privacy during treatment, he said.Our players health and well-being will always be of the utmost importance to the Cleveland Browns, Farmer said. 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.Citing privacy laws, a Browns spokesman declined to provide any further information about Manziels situation.Browns wide receiver Andrew Hawkins offered his support to Manziel on Twitter.Much love and support to my brother Johnny, Hawkins wrote. Proud of him, big step. Football is secondary. God Bless!NBA superstar LeBron James, who is both a friend and business partner of Manziels, also expressed his support for the young QB.I havent talked to him, James said after the Cavaliers won their 11th straight game. As a friend I support him. I want him to get better. As friends and family we all believe in him and this is a good step if this is the route hes going to take.Manziel, who won the Heisman as a freshman at Texas A&M where his playmaking skills earned him his Johnny Football nickname, has faced questions for several years about his active nightlife. After he was drafted in May by the Browns in the first round, Manziel was repeatedly photographed drinking alcohol during weekend trips to Las Vegas. A photograph of Manziel floating on an inflatable swan raft swigging a bottle of champagne went viral.The Browns became increasingly concerned about Manziel when a photo surfaced of Manziel holding a rolled bill in a bathroom.Manziel often dismissed criticism about his behaviour, insisting he wasnt going to let others dictate to him how to live his life. However, following the season, Manziel seemed embarrassed by some of his choices and vowed to change his ways.Its about actions, he somberly told reporters on Dec. 29. Its about being accountable and doing what Im going to say. ... Im either going to learn or Im going to be finding something else to do.Manziels alma mater released a statement offering its support, stating Johnny will always be an Aggie, and we wish him well in another step in his journey.Manziel spent the majority of last season as starter Brian Hoyers backup before coach Mike Pettine switched their roles with the team still in the playoff hunt.Manziel made his first start on Dec. 14 against Cincinnati, but failed miserably. He appeared unprepared and overmatched as the Bengals defence harassed him into two interceptions and the Browns were throttled 30-0. Manziel completed 10 of 18 passes for 80 yards, was sacked twice and looked nothing like a player capable of ending Clevelands long search to find a franchise quarterback.The next week at Carolina, Manziel injured his hamstring on a running play before halftime and was replaced by Hoyer.Manziel was then fined by the Browns for missing a medical treatment before the season finale at Baltimore. Manziel promised he would change following the season, apologizing to Clevelands fans and his teammates for being a distraction.But hours after apologizing, he was photographed in Miami Beach and over the next few days there were photos of him on Instagram in a Houston nightclub and in Aspen, Colorado.The Browns have made it clear to Manziel that they expect more from him if he wants to be their leader.Johnny has to show on and off the field he can be a professional, owner Jimmy Haslam said on Jan. 22. He knows that. Everybody in the organization has told him that. He knows what we expect of him on and off the field and its up to him to prove he can do that.Manziels uncertain future could influence the Browns plans at quarterback. Hoyer is scheduled to become a free agent, but the Cleveland native may be willing to re-sign with Cleveland, especially if Manziel is not in the picture. The Browns also have two first-round picks (Nos. 12 and 19) in this years draft and may be willing to use them to land a quarterback.___AP NFL website: www.pro32.ap.org and www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Malcom Brown Jersey .com) - The Boston Bruins announced Monday that the team has signed goaltender Niklas Svedberg to a one-year contract.

Peterson pleaded no contest Nov. 4 to misdemeanour reckless assault in Texas for injuries to his 4-year-old son with a wooden switch.The NFLPA quickly called for a neutral arbitrator to handle an appeal and sharply rebuked the league for what it labeled as inconsistency and unfairness in determining the discipline. The NFLs words were even stronger, with a nearly 1,600-word statement spelling out the conditions for Petersons return to the field and describing the reasons for the punishment.The NFL said Peterson would stay on the special exempt list and continue to be paid during the appeal process, but the unions attempt to at least temporarily reinstate him failed. The grievance filed against the league last week was overturned Tuesday by the arbitrator who heard the arguments, according to a person with knowledge of the situation. The person spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the situation.Even if Peterson were to win a shorter suspension with an appeal, the Vikings actually playing him would be an implausible scenario given the heat they have taken and the long time Peterson has been away from the team. The Vikings have six games left and host the Green Bay Packers on Sunday.The Vikings issued only a brief statement: We respect the leagues decision and will have no further comment at this time.Fullback Jerome Felton said on Twitter that characterizing his feelings on the NFLs decision as a disagreement would be the understatement of the year. In Pittsburgh, Steelers safety Mike Mitchell questioned the system that gives Goodell executive power on player discipline.Im not just trying to bash him or come down on him, but I think players would feel better if he wasnt just judge, jury and executioner, Mitchell said.Peterson has said he intended no harm to his 4-year-old son, only discipline. Peterson was on a special exempt list at the sole discretion of Goodell, essentially paid leave while the case went through the legal system.The NFLPA said Peterson was told that would count as time served toward a suspension, citing an unidentified NFL executive. League spokesman Brian McCarthy said the stay on the exempt list was taken into account, citing aggravating circumstances for the extended susspension.ddddddddddddGoodell announced Aug. 28 tougher punishment for players involved with domestic violence. That action stemmed from a torrent of criticism for the initial leniency toward Baltimore Ravens running back Ray Rice following a caught-on-camera knockout punch of the woman who is now his wife. Rice was later suspended indefinitely and recently had his appeal heard by an arbitrator.According to the enhanced policy, first offences of assault, battery or domestic violence bring a six-game suspension.Goodells letter to Peterson cited the aggravating circumstance, pointing to the childs age and the significant physical difference between him and his son.Further, the injury inflicted on your son includes the emotional and psychological trauma to a young child who suffers criminal physical abuse at the hands of his father, Goodell wrote. Second, the repetitive use of a switch in this instance is the functional equivalent of a weapon, particularly in the hands of someone with the strength of an accomplished professional athlete.Goodell also came down on Peterson for showing no meaningful remorse for hurting the boy and expressed concern that he may feel free to engage in similar conduct in the future.The injuries to the boy occurred in May. Peterson was indicted in September, a few days after the season opener. The Vikings put him on the inactive list for the next game. The day after, they announced he would resume playing until completion of his due process in court.But with the Rice backlash as a backdrop, Peterson, the Vikings and the NFL were inundated by protests as corporations cancelled sponsorships. The Vikings relented and less than two days later he was placed on the exempt list.The union has accused the league of overstepping bounds spelled out in the collective bargaining agreement.The decision by the NFL to suspend Adrian Peterson is another example of the credibility gap that exists between the agreements they make and the actions they take. Since Adrians legal matter was adjudicated, the NFL has ignored their obligations and attempted to impose a new and arbitrary disciplinary proceeding, the NFLPA said.Petersons salary for the season was $11.75 million. He will keep the money accrued while on the exempt list. But the NFLs punishment has now amounted to a 14-game ban, with six unpaid weeks. Thats the equivalent of a fine of more than $4.1 million.Peterson will turn 30 in March. There are three years and $45 million remaining on his contract, but none of it is guaranteed. The Vikings would take only a $2.4 million hit on their 2015 salary cap if they cut him before next season.___AP Sports Writer Will Graves in Pittsburgh contributed to this report.___AP NFL websites: http://www.pro32.ap.org and http://www.twitter.com/AP_NFL Cheap NFL Gear Wholesale Authentic Jerseys NFL Jerseys Wholesale Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Jerseys Cheap Black China NFL Jerseys Wholesale Jerseys 2020 ' ' '
