Johnny Manziel makes Browns debut

Yahoo Sports

Don't expect Johnny Manziel to say anything crazy as a rookie. When it comes to saying the right things in a media setting, Manziel handles himself like a 10-year NFL veteran.

The popular view of Manziel is the new Cleveland Browns quarterback is cocky and full of himself, but even if he is he hides it well. So it's not a big surprise that after a rookie camp practice on Saturday, Manziel came off well talking about the hoopla surrounding his first week as a professional, including slipping to the 22nd overall pick and Browns owner Jimmy Haslam saying he will begin his career as Brian Hoyer's backup and needs to work his way up.
