Browns coach expects Johnny to be good

Posted: Updated:
BEREA, Ohio (AP) - Browns coach Mike Pettine says he's not worried about rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel's off-field behavior carrying into the football season.

Manziel has made headlines with his partying during the offseason, and a recent photo and video of him brought more scrutiny. While he was on vacation recently, Pettine called Manziel and they had a "positive conversation."

Pettine believes Manziel understands he needs to concentrate on football, and "he's going to have to probably be more dedicated than he has ever been."

Manziel begins training camp behind Brian Hoyer on Cleveland's depth chart. The Browns selected Manziel, one of college football's most popular players, in the first round of the NFL draft. Pettine, though, said the team will not be influenced by "external pressure" to name its starting quarterback.
