NFL Analayst Mike Mayock loves the way that the Cleveland Browns are handling their young rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel. He loves that the team is making him earn his stripes.
“I love the way they are handling him right now,” Mayock told Tom Reed of The Plain Dealer over the weekend. “I’m happy they didn’t hand it to him. The kid has had too much handed to him in life already. Let him work for something here.”
Manziel has to step into training camp and OTAs and take the starting job away from Brian Hoyer. They are making him work for that starting gig, instead of just handing it over to him.
The job is there for Manziel. He just has to prove to the rest of the team that he is good enough to take the starting job away.
In the end, I think Manziel will be the starter going into the first week of the season. I think that he will be the most impressive quarterback coming out of training camp and that he will be given his shot to take over the franchise.
The kid has something special.
