Report: Browns Starting Johnny Manziel In Week 14


ESPN’s Chris Mortensen (per Adam Schefter) reports that the Browns will, in fact, be turning to Johnny Manziel as their starting quarterback for Week 14.


Ian Rapoport of NFL Media reports that it would be a “major surprise” if the Browns don’t go back to Johnny Manziel as their starting quarterback.

Cleveland is expected to address their quarterback situation at some point today.


Tony Grossi of ESPN Cleveland is hearing that the Browns will turn back to Johnny Manziel as their starting quarterback for the final four games of the season.

According to Grossi nothing is official right now, but the expectation is that Pettine will announced the move on Monday.

Earlier in the day, Ian Rapoport on NFL Media reported that there was still a chance Manziel could return to the starting quarterback role this season, even after he was benched once a video surfaced of him partying a few weeks ago.

On Sunday, Austin Davis completed 25-of-38 passes for 231 yards and an interception in their 37-3 blowout loss to the Bengals.

Manziel, 22, is in the second year of his four-year, $8,247,250 rookie contract that included $6,702,625 guaranteed. He’ll make a base salary of $794,936 this season and another $1,169,872 in 2016.

This season, Manziel has appeared in six games and thrown for 933 yards while completing 59.4 percent of his passes to go along with five touchdowns and two interceptions. Manziel has also ran for 90 yards.
