Former Cleveland Browns wide receiver Johnny Manziel suspended three games after being arrested for domestic violence
The former Browns wideout Johnny Manziel was suspended three times from the team’s training camp, and was eventually released from the program on July 10, league sources told ESPN.
Manziel was released from jail on Monday.
Manziel, who was charged with two counts of domestic violence stemming from a July 11 altercation with his wife, had no comment on the latest developments, but was expected to return to Cleveland next season.
Manziel’s suspension comes less than a week after the Browns released him from his contract.
He was arrested in April on two misdemeanor counts of battery, but a domestic violence charge was dropped because he pleaded guilty to the lesser charge and completed his rehabilitation.
Manziel had a $5 million fine in his court record and a $250,000 bond, which was set to be paid after he appeared in court on the domestic violence charges.
Manziel played two seasons with the Browns, earning nine touchdowns and 11 interceptions in the two seasons he played there.
The Browns’ first-round draft pick in 2010, Manziel signed a two-year contract extension last year worth $15.5 million.
He missed the last three games of the 2015 season with an ankle injury.
Manziel is scheduled to be in court again on Tuesday, the league announced.
