It's front page news even though it's really not. Johnny Manziel is taking first team reps at QB for the Cleveland Browns. From ESPN:

Manziel is trying to beat out Brian Hoyer for the starting job. The 2012 Heisman Trophy winner from Texas A&M had worked exclusively with Cleveland's second-string offense until Monday.

On his first play of 11-on-11 drills, Manziel completed a 40-yard pass to Travis Benjamin. The wide receiver came back to grab an underthrown ball. Moments later, Manziel's tipped pass intended for Josh Gordon was intercepted by safety Donte Whitner.

Calm down, everyone. The other guy is Brian Hoyer. They have a full month of training camp. Are the Browns supposed to NOT see if their #1 pick can play with the starters? Long camp. Lots of time to see what works.
