Pettine: Manziel not taking starting job from McCown

    Johnny Manziel was clearly the best quarterback on the Cleveland Browns roster Thursday night, but that does not mean he is inching closer to earning a starting role. Manziel was one of very few players who shined in an ugly 11-10 loss to the Buffalo Bills.

Manziel must step up in Browns' second preseason game

As the Cleveland Browns prepare to face off against the Buffalo Bills this evening, there is a lot more on the line for second-year quarterback Johnny Manziel. Normally preseason games are viewed as a practice game, but for Manziel these preseason games could decide what happens with him in the future.

Cleveland Browns still view Josh McCown as their starting QB

Josh McCown, Andy Lee among highest graded Browns vs. Washington

The Browns lost the preseason opener against Washington, and that’s fine — the preseason is less about winning and more about getting up to speed and figuring out who can really play. (And to a lesser extent, it’s about seeing how those new uniforms look.) To that end, Pro Football Focus released its top five graded players from both the Browns and the Skins. PFF’s grading...

Johnny Manziel not making a ‘huge deal’ out of first-team reps

Cleveland Browns head coach Mike Pettine indicated that Johnny Manziel “probably” will get some reps with the first team offense during the team’s scrimmage on Friday, but both he and the quarterback did their best to downplay any significance to it. “The quarterback rotation, we’ll get Josh (McCown) some reps but maybe not as many as the others,” Pettine said, via...

Josh McCown is not a mannequin

This just in: Josh McCown is not a mannequin. He is an actual human, American football player. It’s true! If you get an opportunity to attend a Cleveland Browns practice, you can see him moving about or throwing the football. He’s a big dude, 6-foot-4, 218 pounds. There are only a handful of Browns players 6-4 or taller, but most of those guys are a lot wider, so it’s pretty...
