BEREA, Ohio (AP) - With No. 2 jerseys ringing the field, Browns rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel has begun his quest to win Cleveland's starting job.
Manziel is taking part in his first NFL training camp practice on Saturday and thousands of fans have come out for an up-close look at the sensation nicknamed Johnny Football. Fans began lining up outside the Browns' training complex at 5 a.m. to secure the closest possible spots near the practice fields.
Manziel, the former Heisman Trophy winner who was drafted in the first round by the Browns, walked onto the field at 9:22 a.m. as House of Pain's ''Jump Around'' blared through loudspeakers.
On Friday, Manziel, who will battle Brian Hoyer to be the starter, acknowledged he made ''some rookie mistakes'' with an offseason filled with partying.
