    Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel needs to have an obsession with football, according to offensive coordinator John DeFilippo. 'It's truly a lifestyle to be an NFL quarterback,' DeFilippo said. 'It's not just a job. It's all-consuming. You need to sleep, eat, do everything fast and just think about football all the time.'

    Huddle Up: Manziel has some personal issues to get under control first, but once that happens if he is to find NFL success he'll certainly need to be more devoted to his craft than he demonstrated in his rookie season.

    Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel is making progress during his time at a rehabilitation facility and head coach Mike Pettine said the team is proud of the progress he's making.

    Huddle Up: Perhaps if Manziel can get his off-the-field life in order it will help him shape up his on-the-field act as well. The Browns are still in need of a quarterback, and the former first-round pick has an opportunity with Brian Hoyer a free agent.

    Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel still has the support of Browns owner Jimmy Haslam. 'I think it's way too early to give up on Johnny,'Haslam told the team's beat writers during a meeting. Haslam went on to say he applauds Manziel for seeking help and the team will do everything it can to support him for 'however long that takes.'

    Huddle Up: While what we've seen on and off the field with Johnny F-Ball hasn't exactly been promising, you'd think the team which spent a first-round pick on Manziel is going to give him more than two rookie-season starts to prove himself on way or the other, provided he cleans up his off-field act.

    Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel has entered a treatment program, according to publicist Denise Michaels. Manziel is expected to be in rehab for at least a few weeks, but the amount of time he's there largely depends on what a doctor recommends, according to a source close to Manziel. Manziel is voluntarily entering treatment as a result of his lifestyle off the football field, and he wants to 'figure out his value system.' Nearly 20 Browns sources are on record that Manziel showed a yearlong pattern of a lack of commitment and preparation and a dedication to nightlife that affected his preparation. 'Johnny's his own worst enemy,' one source said.

    Huddle Up: It's a positive step for Manziel both personally and professionally, though his reevaluating his value system doesn't necessarily mean he'll automatically become a good NFL quarterback. Looks like more drama to come in the Browns' OTAs.

    Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel had a big proponent last year in owner Jimmy Haslam, but Haslam now thinks the team needs a quarterback in order to get their team turned in the right direction. "We've got to get a quarterback and got to get it fixed," Haslam said. "What I would say to our fans is, we're going to continue to work really hard to find that quarterback who can make us a championship team." Haslam isn't ruling out Manziel being the starting quarterback in 2015, but he's leaving it open for other options, including QBs Brian Hoyer or Connor Shaw.

    Huddle Up: The Browns used a first-round pick on Johnny FB and are going to need more than two starts and 35 regular-season passing attempts to accurately judge what they have. It's always tough with the Browns, but more patience is needed.

    Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel will be working with a new offensive coordinator this year in John DeFilippo, but DeFilippo is unsure if the team's quarterback next year is currently on the roster. 'We're not sure if our starting quarterback's in the building right now or not,' DeFilippo said. 'If he is, that's great. If he's not, that's great, too. Whoever's in that room is going to be coached hard, be held accountable and be expected to do the things that we expect out of Cleveland Browns quarterbacks.' DeFilippo said that all Cleveland quarterbacks will begin the offseason with a clean slate.

    Huddle Up: DeFilippo, who has been coaching the Raiders' QBs since 2012, is getting some of the credit for Derek Carr's successful rookie season in 2014 and now he'll be tasked with molding Manziel into a start-able NFL QB as the 2014 first-round pick doesn't look to be going anywhere soon.

    Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel (hamstring) is out for the rest of the year due to a hamstring injury suffered in Week 16, according to head coach Mike Pettine.

    Huddle Up: Manziel should be in the mix for Cleveland's starting job in 2015 but expect the Browns to bring in some serious competition. Manziel still has a long ways to go before he's ready to lead an NFL team.

  • Posted: 12/22/2014 2:24pm ET

    Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel (hamstring) is questionable for Week 17 against the Baltimore Ravens after hurting his hamstring in Week 16, according to head coach Mike Pettine. Manziel is 18-for-35 for 143 yards, a rushing touchdown and two interceptions in his two starts this year.

    Huddle Up: Brian Hoyer is likely to start the Browns finale against the Ravens. Manziel is expected to be given an opportunity to be Cleveland's starting quarterback in 2015, despite his struggles this season.

  • Posted: 12/22/2014 10:31am ET

    Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel (hamstring) left the team's Week 16 game early because of a hamstring injury and did not return.

    Huddle Up: Brian Hoyer took over and went 7-13-134 with one TD. He also had an interception and was sacked three times. At this point Manziel is considered questionable for the Week 17 finale against Baltimore.

  • Posted: 12/14/2014 8:50pm ET

    Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel will start in Week 16 against the Carolina Panthers, head coach Mike Pettine confirmed Sunday, Dec. 14.

    Huddle Up: Manziel had a nightmare first start on Sunday against the Bengals. Cleveland's 107 yards of offense was the lowest total of any team this season. Manziel is nothing more than a low-end QB2 for the final two games.

  • Posted: 12/9/2014 3:54pm ET

    Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel will be the starting quarterback in Week 15 against the Cincinnati Bengals.

    Huddle Up: Brian Hoyer got his chance, starting 13 games, and now it's time to see what the first-round pick can do. If anything, the Browns' RBs should be the biggest beneficiaries with a more mobile QB attracting defensive attention.

  • Posted: 12/9/2014 9:59am ET

    Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel is likely to start in Week 15, according to indications from sources. All that remains is waiting for head coach Mike Pettine to announce it.

    Huddle Up: Brian Hoyer could not deliver at home against Indy, throwing for 140 yards, no touchdowns and two picks. The Browns aren't out of the playoff race, but at this point there's little teeth to the argument that Hoyer gives them a better chance to win. May as well see if Johnny Football can bring a little spark to this offense down the stretch.

  • Posted: 12/8/2014 8:36pm ET

    Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel could be taking over as starting quarterback in the near future. 'I think it's natural to lean the other way, given the results,' head coach Mike Pettine said Monday, Dec. 8. Pettine said he, the coaches and general manager Ray Farmer would meet Monday night and make a decision.

    Huddle Up: Hoyer has thrown for 1 TD and 8 interceptions over the last four games -- three of which resulted in losses -- and if it's not Johnny Football time now, when will it be?

  • Posted: 9/22/2014 9:20am ET

    Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel is working with the first-team offense in practice Tuesday, Aug. 5.

    Huddle Up: The plan is still for Brian Hoyer to start the first preseason game, and quite likely the regular season as well. But Manziel is the future franchise quarterback, so it makes sense to get him some reps with the ones. Manziel hasn't exactly been lighting it up, so it's not like he's staking a serious claim to the job right now. In other words, don't draft him in fantasy redraft leagues expecting to get 16 starts out of him in 2014.

  • Posted: 9/22/2014 9:20am ET

    Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel has not been named the starter for the team's second preseason game Monday, Aug. 18, according to head coach Mike Pettine.

    Huddle Up: All signs point to Manziel starting Cleveland's second preseason game so the rookie can get reps with the first-team offense. Manziel showed flashes on Saturday night when he played with the second and third-team units, completing 7-of-11 passes for 63 yards. He also added 27 yards rushing.

  • Posted: 9/22/2014 9:20am ET

    Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel worked with the first-team offense in 9-on-9 and 11-on-11 drills in practice Friday, Aug. 15, and looked better going through his progressions. Head coach Mike Pettine said the team has left all of their options on the table when determining who the starting quarterback would be going into Week 1.

    Huddle Up: The Browns are expected to make a decision on their starting quarterback some time early next week. How Manziel and Brian Hoyer perform in the second preseason game will go a long way in deciding who gets the starting nod on opening day.

  • Posted: 9/22/2014 9:20am ET

    Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel said he doesn't feel ready for the team's regular season opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Manziel added he can get ready, though, as it's only the second week of the preseason.

    Huddle Up: Manziel's comments may show some modesty but the bottom line is he's still in close competition with Brian Hoyer to start Week 1. Expect the Browns to name a starter early next week. If it's Manziel, he'll be a top-tier QB2 entering the year with plenty of upside.

  • Posted: 8/22/2014 2:03pm ET

    Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel could play with QB Brian Hoyer in a two-quarterback system later in the season, according to head coach Mike Pettine. Pettine said a package for Manziel is on the table. Pettine said he didn't anticipate a platoon early in the season. Pettine also made it clear that Hoyer is on a week-to-week trial.

    Huddle Up: Despite Manziel's current shortcomings and issues -- he was just fined $12K by the league on Friday for the upraised middle finger he displayed to the Washington bench on Monday night -- the first-round pick is sure to be see plenty of PT in some form or fashion this season as the team needs to know if he's the QB of the future.

  • Posted: 8/19/2014 11:35pm ET

    Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel's obscene gesture will play a factor in the competition for the starting quarterback job, according to head coach Mike Pettine.

    Huddle Up: Just another indication that Brian Hoyer will open the season as the Browns' starter.

  • Posted: 8/19/2014 2:23pm ET

    Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel could be fined for an obscene gesture he made toward the Washington Redskins' bench in the preseason game Monday, Aug. 18.

    Huddle Up: Win or lose, good night or bad night -- and Monday falls under the latter in both categories for the rookie -- Johnny Football never fails to generate headline and social-media buzz.

  • Posted: 8/19/2014 9:11am ET

    Cleveland Browns QB Brian Hoyer completed two of his six pass attempts for 16 yards during the team's preseason game Monday, Aug. 18, and QB Johnny Manziel completed seven of his 16 passes for 65 yards and a touchdown. Manziel was also sacked three times, and gave the middle finger to the Washington Redskins' bench.

    Huddle Up: Neither quarterback did themselves any favors in the battle to be the Browns' starter, which means they most likely default back to Hoyer. Johnny Football fans, you'll just have to wait.

  • Posted: 8/10/2014 4:32pm ET

    Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel has taken the lead in the team's QB competition, according to a team source.

    Huddle Up: Both Manziel and starter Brian Hoyer had their moments in Saturday night's 13-12 exhibition loss in Detroit, although neither managed to lead the Browns into the end zone. The rook, however, has a decided hype advantage and we'll see if he gets his expected turn to start the team's next game a week from Monday night in Washington.

  • Posted: 8/3/2014 3:36pm ET

    Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel appears to have narrowed the gap between him and starting QB Brian Hoyer with his performance in the scrimmage Saturday, Aug. 2. Manziel could start earning some first-team repetitions in practice soon.

    Huddle Up: It's tightening up, but the real tests begin Thursday when the Browns open their exhibition schedule in Detroit, and the QBs are expected to least have 2 preseason games to state their cases before the Browns choose a starter.

  • Posted: 6/17/2014 12:45pm ET

    The Cleveland Browns signed QB Johnny Manziel to a four-year contract Tuesday, June 17. Official financial terms were not immediately disclosed.

    Huddle Up: Here's one off-field item that won't be an issue as the rookie can now focus on winning the starting gig.

  • Posted: 5/28/2014 12:18am ET

    Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel reported to the team for organized team activities Tuesday, May 27, after spending a weekend in Las Vegas. Manziel responded to criticism of the trip saying he was able to study his playbook during his time away.

    Huddle Up: Revising the old Ken Stabler line: Studying the playbook by the glow of the neon lights perhaps?
