The Cleveland Browns have committed to start Brian Hoyer over rookie Johnny Manziel at quarterback to begin the 2014 season, the team announced Wednesday morning.
"He was the clear leader from the beginning," coach Mike Pettine said in a statement. "We've maintained all along that if it was close, I would prefer to go with the more experienced player. Brian has done a great job in the meeting rooms and with his teammates on the practice field and in the locker room."
I'm disappointed that Ryan Shazier will not have the opportunity to destroy him, but at the same time, I find it hilarious how many Manziel jerseys the Browns have sold for someone who may hardly even see the field this year, if ever.
