Johnny Manziel Not Getting Special Treatment

He may be known as Johnny Football for his incredible skills on the football field but the Cleveland Browns are not showing him special treatment.

According to Pro Football Talk, the Browns are making sure everyone knows that Manziel is just another rookie. To ensure this mindset continues, Cleveland is being vocal about Manziel having to work for a role on the team.

They have made it very clear that he will not have the starting job handed to him.

Browns owner Jimmy Haslam has said that Manziel is a backup, and GM Ray Farmer agrees.

Farmer wants to remind everyone that Manziel hasn’t even thrown a pass yet. He was just drafted and now he has work to do.

Farmer continued to say that they are trying to treat him just like they treat all the rookies. They want to give everyone an equal opportunity to earn their spot.
