The Cleveland Browns announced that they will start Johnny Manziel at quarterback in their second preseason game after giving Brian Hoyer the start in the opener.
The Cleveland Browns are starting Brian Hoyer at quarterback in their first preseason game, but they are serious about getting as much information as they can to make a proper decision on their regular-season starter.
Head coach Mike Pettine announced that Johnny Manziel will make the start in the Browns’ next preseason game. Manziel is reportedly close with Hoyer in the starting quarterback competition, and this next game will indicate who is more worthy to take over the position.
Hoyer looked solid in the Browns’ preseason opener, throwing for 92 yards on 6-for-14 passing.
The Browns will play their next preseason game against the Washington Redskins, so this may be an exciting clash between two quarterbacks who are known for running in read-option plays. This is assuming that Robert Griffin III plays for the Redskins again.
This is bound to be one of the most hyped preseason games of all time since fans will get to see the former Heisman winner start in an NFL uniform for the first time.
