Browns could use Johnny Manziel package against Saints
Manziel did not play in the Browns' season-opening loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers. Starter Brian Hoyer completed 19 of 31 pass attempts for 230 yards and one touchdown, helping lead the Browns back from a 27-3 deficit before the Steelers ultimately won, 30-27.
Cleveland selected Manziel with the No. 22 pick in this year's draft. Over four preseason games, the Texas A&M product and former Heisman Trophy winner completed 30 of his 59 pass attempts for 296 yards and two touchdowns. Manziel has reportedly struggled to grasp the Browns' playbook.
Browns coach Mike Pettine has said he is unsure if he will make a "permanent commitment" to either quarterback.
