The Browns drafted Manziel in hopes of ending a revolving door at quarterback.
“I think he knows that in order for him to compete well, he’s going to have to probably be more dedicated than ever,” Pettine said of Manziel.

When the Browns begin full-squad practices on Saturday it will be Brian Hoyer getting the first team reps.
“I think at this point, right now, it’s more Johnny versus the playbook than it is (Johnny) versus Brian.”
Hoyer put together a nice showing last season before going down with an ACL tear. He completed 59.-4 percent of his passes for five touchdowns while tossing three interceptions.
