Pettine: Manziel shelved for rest of preseason

Cleveland Browns head coach Mike Pettine says quarterback Johnny Manziel will definitely not play in preseason game 3 against Tampa on Saturday, and he's also pretty certain he won't play in the finale against Chicago.

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.

Why the Browns should not pursue Ray Rice

Do I really have to spend time writing about the Cleveland Browns and Ray Rice? Thanks to Mike Pettine and his comments on Tuesday, I guess I do. I don’t want to because my easy answer to the idea of Ray Rice playing in Cleveland is a simple and decisive, “No.” I hate to just let my instant reaction fly without further exploration though, because there has to be a more well...
