The Cleveland Browns announced today that they have released Johnny Manziel, after reports in February claimed the team would waive the quarterback in March.

The 23-year-old is a free agent, but his legal trouble is a more pressing issue than his current unemployment. Manziel allegedly hit ex-girlfriend Colleen Crowley several times in January; Crowley asked for a restraining order against him as Dallas police opened a criminal investigation into the incident. In February, the department referred the case to a grand jury.
