Johnny Manziel has reportedly started his sobriety, sending Snapchats of him drinking water surrounded by people drinking alcohol, per Dallas News.

That comes days after Manziel was reportedly offered a gig to return to professional football, this time in the Arena Football League.

And according to Bleacher Report's Mike Freeman, Manziel reportedly realizes his route back to the league might take him indoors, or through Canada.

"Manziel has recently told several NFL players that he realizes he may never get back to the NFL, and if he does, it will have to be through a route like the CFL or the Arena league."

It seems like Manziel's effort on a return is good for now, but whether it holds remains to be seen.
