Former Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel agreed to a plea deal with Dallas prosecutors Friday, resulting in the dismissal of the domestic violence case against him.
The former Heisman Trophy winner will also have his conduct monitored by prosecutors for up to one year and could face up to a year in jail if he breaks the terms of the plea deal.
According to Perez, the Dallas County District Attorney's office released the following statement regarding Manziel's deal: "A conditional dismissal agreement is only the beginning of the process of educating an individual on how to make better choices when facing conflict. It is an important first step for a defendant. Success or failure will depend on one's commitment to the [treatment] programs included."
The Browns cut ties with Manziel in March due to a combination of poor play on the field and issues off the field.
No NFL franchise has shown public interest in signing Manziel since his departure from Cleveland.
