Manziel or Hoyer? Browns not ready to name starting QB
CLEVELAND — Who will it be: Johnny Manziel or Brian Hoyer?
Browns Coach Mike Pettine told reporters on Tuesday’s conference call that the team is not in a position right now to make a decision on who will start the Sept. 7 opener in Pittsburgh.
The decision could come after the Browns third preseason game at home on Saturday against the Rams.
Manziel made a raised middle finger gesture towards the Redskins bench that could result in a fine. Pettine said the gesture will be part of the decision-making process. He allowed that he was “extremely disappointed” and that his staff will address it with Manziel. The rookie more than likely could hear from the NFL.
