"When we put the depth chart together (for camp) Brian (Hoyer) will be no. 1," Pettine said, according to Cleveland Plain Dealer’s Mary Kay Cabot.
While noting that Hoyer’s play has been better, Pettine also suggested that Manziel will receive some first-team reps.
"I don't think it's insurmountable," said Pettine, when asked how much ground Manziel has to make up.
Any rookie quarterback faces their respective struggles and Manziel has been no different. He has been criticized by observers for having trouble with his reads and progressions while Hoyer has looked much more polished.
It’s important to not put too much stock in early-June reports as we have a long way until Week 1 when the Browns travel to play the Steelers.
