Johnny Manziel posting workout videos as he attempts comeback

Baker Mayfield isn’t Johnny Manziel and that comparison seems unfounded to him

According to its website, the Spring League is "an elite developmental league and scouting event for professional football talent".

Manziel joined the Cleveland Browns as the 22 player picked in the 2014 NFL Draft. The former Browns first-round draft pick has said he has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder, but he hopes others will be able to learn from the mistakes he made that ruined his National Football League career in quick order.

Other recent commitments to The Spring League include former Raven running back Lorenzo Taliaferro and former Jets tight end Kellen Winslow Jr. "My goal is to make it back to the National Football League and I realize I have to earn that privilege", Manziel said in the release.

Manziel said his mother approached him one day with tears rolling down her face to confront him about his behavior and let him know how it impacted those around him.

Though The Spring League is not affiliated with the NFL, it recruits players with previous NFL experience who are looking to return to pro football, making it a good fit for Manziel.

Not only will Mayfield be able to figure out what went wrong for Manziel on the field, but he'll be able to learn from his mistakes off of it.

Susan Rice Email: Obama Met With FBI/DOJ About Russia, Discussed Steele Dossier
The partially unclassified email appears to detail a meeting that took place on January 5, 2017, two weeks before Trump's inauguration.

During his absence from the NFL, Manziel was suspended for violating the league's substance-abuse policy.

"For a while I got so ingrained, caring only about what Johnny wanted, only caring what mattered to me, what made me happy". Where did that get me? It remains to be seen whether any team will be willing to take a chance on him, but it's safe to say that he has a long road ahead of him.

"I am taking medication for bipolar, and I am working to try to make sure I don't fall back into any type of depression, because I know where that leads me and I know how slippery a slope that is for me", he said.

"I'm not expecting anything", Manziel told Pardon My Take (h/t For the Win's Andrew Joseph). Manziel's path back to football will nearly assuredly go through Canada and the CFL, where his rights are held by the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, coached by June Jones, who tried to recruit Manziel to SMU out of high school.

I used to ask people all the time if they were hoping he'd make a comeback.
