Browns Owner Jimmy Haslam Says Johnny Manziel Is the Backup QB

Browns Owner Jimmy Haslam Says Johnny Manziel Is the Backup QB

Elsa/Getty Images(NEW YORK) -- While Cleveland Browns fans are greatly anticipating the start of the Johnny Manziel era, team owner Jimmy Haslam says the quarterback will not enter training camp as the team's starter.

While addressing a luncheon in Canton, Ohio, at the Pro Football Hall of Fame, Haslam said Manziel needs to start acting "like a backup quarterback."

While Haslam was quick to praise his prized rookie, he also made it known that Manziel will have to beat out Brian Hoyer for the starting quarterback job.

Hoyer had a nice run as the Browns' starting quarterback this past season, but suffered a torn ACL and was forced to miss a majority of the season.

The Browns traded back into the first round to select Manziel in hopes that he will finally be the answer for the team at quarterback.

While at Texas A&M, Manziel threw for 7,820 yards and accounted for 93 total touchdowns during his two seasons at Texas A&M. He also became the first freshman to ever win the Heisman Trophy.
