Cleveland Browns rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel says he misses college life.

The Browns selected Manziel with the No. 22 pick of the 2014 NFL Draft after he played two seasons at Texas A&M. Manziel accounted for 9,989 total yards and 93 touchdowns over two seasons with the Aggies and won the Heisman Trophy in 2012.

Manziel has spent most of his time on the bench this season, attempting only one pass, after veteran Brian Hoyer beat him out for the Browns starting quarterback job. 

Manziel attended Texas A&M's win over Arkansas at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, last weekend and reportedly spent time with coach Kevin Sumlin.


"I don't think I miss school,'' said Manziel. "But I miss those guys in the locker room. I miss Coach Sumlin. I think it's fair for me to say that I miss college life, but this is the decision that I made. And I knew very well going into the draft last year that it was going to be different for me and going to be a time for me to grow up. That's the path I chose. And if I wanted to stay in college and sleep in and go to class and horse around like I was doing the past couple years, then I should have stayed."

The Browns (1-2) play at Tennessee on Sunday.
