After what could reasonably be deemed the worst quarterback competition in recent NFL memory, Brian Hoyer has been named the Cleveland Browns’ starter.

That leaves Johnny Manziel on the bench to begin his NFL career, a place that is probably best for him in the long term and will be temporary unless Hoyer improves dramatically in the regular-season opener against Pittsburgh.
