Glazer: Did Johnny Manziel attending Cavs game sway Browns’ coaches?
The merits of either Brian Hoyer or Johnny Manziel starting at quarterback for the Browns have been talked about ad nauseam.
Hoyer is a game manager, and Manziel brings a dynamic aspect that Cleveland’s offense is missing. But it could have been Manziel’s off-field decision this week that convinced the team’s coaches to go with Hoyer one more time.
FOX Sports Insider Jay Glazer explained that Manziel on Tuesday night went to a Cavaliers game before the staff had decided on a starter. On Wednesday, head coach Mike Pettine went with Hoyer.
Manziel’s decision — combined with veterans in the locker room backing Hoyer — could have been the deciding factor, as Glazer explains in the video above.
