Cleveland Browns head coach Mike Pettine basically stated that the gap between Brian Hoyer and Johnny Manziel is closing quick.
“When camp began, Brian was the ones because we had to put somebody out there with the ones,” Pettine said Saturday, overlooking the rep-splitting approach that the Vikings have used with rookie Teddy Bridgewater. “But they were truly competing against each other, and at some point we will mix the units. I think that it’s all part of our evaluation process.”
It will be interested to see if Johnny Football can take the keys to the car, but as of right now it sounds like Hoyer is still in the driver’s seat.
