BEREA, Ohio (AP) Johnny Manziel waved both arms as if he was quieting the home crowd before a big play.
Really, he just wants to fade into the background a bit. Good luck with that.
Beaten out by Brian Hoyer to be Cleveland's starter, the Browns rookie quarterback said Wednesday that he's disappointed he won't be on the field against Pittsburgh in the season opener on Sept. 7. Manziel knows he didn't do enough during training camp and the preseason to convince coach Mike Pettine to choose him over Hoyer, who overcame a serious knee injury and then held off the first-round draft pick to keep the job.
