Johnny Manziel is fresh out of rehab, and the Cleveland Browns quarterback has started making amends.

Manziel released a statement through the Browns’ website, thanking and apologizing to his teammates and fans:

“I would like to thank my family, friends, the Browns organization, my teammates, and Browns fans everywhere, for your patience, understanding, and support during my stay at Caron,” Manziel wrote. “The doctors and staff have been amazing, and what I’ve learned in the last couple of months has been tremendous. I owe private apologies to a lot of people that I disappointed but a very public one to the Browns organization and the fans that I let down. I take full responsibility for my actions, and it’s my intention to work very hard to regain everyone’s trust and respect. I understand that will take time and will only happen through what I do and not what I say.

“I also understand there’s a lot of curiosity about this, but anyone who has a friend or family member that’s been through things like this knows it’s an ongoing process. I’m going to continue to ask folks to try to respect my privacy as I determine to what degree I am comfortable talking about a subject which I consider very personal. Most of you have been considerate about that, and I thank you for it. I look forward to seeing my teammates next week and focusing on football and my desire to be the best possible player, teammate and man that I can be.”

Manziel entered rehab in February and was released from the center last week.
