Browns give Manziel the go ahead


The Josh McCown experiment comes to an end and the Manziel Project begins. 

“Mike Pettine announced on Tuesday that the Browns are handing the starting quarterback job over to Johnny Manziel for the remainder of the season. It’s a move that makes plenty of sense. Bottoming out at 2-8, the Browns desperately need a spark. Manziel fits the bill after coming off the finest game of his career with 372 yards through the air in Sunday’s 30-9 loss to the Steelers. Completing 73 percent of his passes and showing newfound patience in the pocket, the second-year passer earned high praise from Pettine for taking “a big step forward.” – Reported by Marc Sessler
