Tyler native Johnny Manziel launches comeback, grandfather voices support
Manziel is attempting a comeback.

TYLER, TX (KLTV) - It's been quite the week for Johnny Manziel, but in a good way. On Monday, an interview with ABC News ran where the Tyler native admitted his wrongdoings,
which led to the quarterback being cut by the Browns in March of 2016.

Manziel also hinted at reviving his career, and what you do know the former Texas A&M star and Heisman Trophy winner is set to participate in The Spring
League later this month in Austin, marking the beginning of a potential comeback.

The developmental league will allow the 2014 first round to get back on the field after a two-year absence, and showcase his talents to NFL scouts and personnel.

This recent news is music to the ears of Manziel's grandfather Jerry Loggins, who owns Loggins restaurant in Tyler.

Johnny visited the Rose City not to long ago and spent time with his grandad. And just as he did in the recent ABC News interview, Manziel told Jerry he's sober and out of depression.
