Browns Will Consider Using Manziel in Week 1

Looks like Browns fans might be getting some Johnny Football during the regular season after all.

Following an impressive showing in the Browns final pre-season game against the Bears, Cleveland head coach Mike Pettine said the team will discuss using Manziel in their opener against Pittsburgh. Cleveland.com has more on the story.

“It’s something we’ll discuss,” said coach Mike Pettine.  “I don’t know if that’s necessarily something just because of tonight. We’ll have discussions on how we want to game plan and how we want to use those guys.”

If Pettine approves a package for Manziel for the opener in Pittsburgh, he’ll be ready.

“I think I need to prepare like I’m going to play,” Manziel said. “Whenever it may be, I need to be ready. Whether it’s a package, whether it’s coming in and playing, whatever it is that I’m asked to do, I need to be ready to step in and execute that without any hesitation. That’s my job.”

Manziel led three scoring drives in his five possessions, including a one-yard touchdown pass set up by a spectacular scramble and completion a few plays earlier.

It seems like it’s only a matter of time until we get Johnny Football on Sundays.
