Browns beat writer Mary Kay Cabot answered a question about whether the team is already looking to move on from QB Johnny Manziel.

Cabot: Based on conversations with the Browns at the NFL annual meeting last week, I really don't believe they're ready to give up on Johnny Manziel after only seven quarters of work. For starters, they don't even know what they have in Manziel until he gets out of rehab -- likely sometime this week -- and they want to see if he can live up to his first-round status once he has his personal life under control. Browns general manager Ray Farmer stressed that he believes Manziel has the physical tools to excel in the NFL.

Fantasy Impact: 

Kabot added that Farmer also believes Manziel will flourish in the Browns' play-action, run-oriented scheme when the team doesn't have to rely on him to carry it. There is some thought that the offense changed too drastically when Manziel played, and that it threw off the entire unit. What's more, the Browns now have one of Manziel's mentors in Kevin O'Connell as their quarterbacks coach. Manziel thrived and improved in the few months he spent with O'Connell before the draft last year, and the Browns are confident he can bring out the best in Manziel.
