Brian Hoyer Says To Bring Johnny Manziel On
The fact that Browns coach Mike Pettine said it would be hard for anyone in the draft class to beat out Brian Hoyer for the starting job at quarterback didnt stop the Browns from ending a Thursday night spent hopping around the draft board with a trade up to secure the rights to Johnny Manziel. Pettine acknowledged Manziels "it" factor but said that the starting role hadn't changed.
Whether he was taken at four, or going at 22, it will be a competition and I meant that when I said it, said Pettine, via the Cleveland Plain Dealer. I dont think you can hand jobs to people when they come in. Its a situation where despite whats around him and whats following him and there will be that pressure to play him were in the business of evaluating the best quarterback for the Cleveland Browns to win football games and thats whos going to play, whether thats Brian Hoyer or Johnny Manziel.
