Johnny Manziel Wants to be ‘The Guy’ in Cleveland


Manziel’s status for the season finale next week against the Baltimore Ravens (9-6) is unclear, but he sounded as if he doesn’t expect to play. If he’s sidelined, the Browns would close the season with Brian Hoyer as their starting quarterback.

Asked simply if he felt more comfortable this week, Manziel made a pitch in a long-winded answer akin to a season review.

“This was a learning process for me, and regardless of what happens moving forward into this last game of the season, this has really been a great thing for me, a very positive thing for me to get in here with these guys,” Manziel said. “And this week, going through the walk through and going through everything, I was a lot sharper, and a lot more on top of this stuff, and I think these guys see me and see that I’m in the building really putting in a lot of work and I want to be the guy. That’s what I want to be for this organization.
