Browns defensive player is rooting for Manziel to start
The Cleveland Browns received a spark from Johnny Manziel this week moments after he entered the game. Manziel led the Browns on an 80-yard touchdown drive in his first possession, capping the march with a 10-yard scramble into the end zone.
While Mike Pettine is deciding on who to start going forward, Manziel’s teammate Billy Winn already expressed who he wants to start.
“I was excited to see him get a chance to show the league what he can do,” said defensive end Billy Winn, according to The Plain Dealer. “He went out there and made everything come to life.”
“It makes you hesitate because the kid can take off and go,” Winn said of opposing defenses. “He can fly. Johnny can fly. It’s exciting. He’s definitely an exciting guy to watch.
“You never know what he’s going to do. You want a quarterback that can stay in the pocket and put it where it needs to be, but he’s one of these guys that if his read’s not there, he’s going to take off and pick up what he can get.”
