Browns QB Brian Hoyer said that he hasn’t been paying attention to any of teammate Johnny Manziel’s off-field exploits.
“Not really. I’m not really focused on my teammates, what they do in their off life so that’s none of my business,” Hoyer said. “They can make those decisions on their own. All that matters is that we come back ready to go for the season.”
Hoyer said his knee is totally healthy after last year’s torn ACL and that he’s been throwing to Browns receivers Andrew Hawkins and Charles Johnson during the time off before training camp in order to be as sharp as possible when his competition with Manziel heats up later this month. He’ll need to be to remain on top of the depth chart and it’s clear that Hoyer isn’t taking that spot for granted.
We have Manziel slightly ahead of Hoyer right now and think he can be an interesting QB2 if he does win the job.
