As the NFL season prepares for kick-off, Johnny Manziel is headed back to class.

Perhaps a return to his old stomping grounds will help the embattled former signal caller get back to the NFL. Manziel was cut from the Browns back in March and remains in search of an employer.

In the meantime, Johnny Football has returned to Texas A&M to take classes as he pursues the completion of his degree, according to the Dallas Morning News.

Manziel is listed as a senior in the school and is majoring in Recreation, Park, and Tourism. Manziel won the Heisman Trophy with the Aggies back in 2012. The former NFL quarterback had a plethora of off-field incidents this year and is suspended the first four games of this sesaon for violating the league's substance abuse policy.

The former Browns quarterback wasn't able to land a home amid all of his trouble. Cowboys owner Jerry Jones has shown a lot of interest in him in the past, but even he has balked on signing him despite an injury to Tony Romo.

After the Browns cut him, Manziel was dumped by two agents and a lawyer leaked pertinent information displaying how bad his drug and alcohol issues were.

Manziel, 23, has had several issues staying away from the party scene and was also recently indicted by a Dallas jury for a domestic incident with his ex-girlfriend, model Colleen Crowley.

Despite his many issues, Manziel is adamant that he plans on staying sober to pursue a return to the NFL. Perhaps finishing his degree will help put him in the right mindset to pursue his dreams again.

Nevertheless, a friend recently admitted that Manziel acknowledged he hit "rock bottom," though he was still seen partying recently on multiple occasons..

Now he's back at school and hopefully successfully avoiding the Texas A&M party scene.
