BEREA, Ohio (AP) - A look at Browns rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel's day at training camp.
SEEING JOHNNY: Fans simply can't get enough of Johnny Football. The crowd along the sideline cheered after the rookie completed his first few passes of the day, and after practice, he approached fans waiting for an autograph accompanied by a ''John-ny! John-ny!'' chant.
BEING JOHNNY: On the field, it was a tougher day for Manziel. He was inconsistent during team drills, lofting and underthrowing multiple passes. But he did fire some impressive bullets, stepping up in the pocket to connect with wide receiver Charles Johnson and throwing a pass down the middle to wide receiver Miles Austin that resulted in a diving grab.
COACHING JOHNNY: First-year coach Mike Pettine wasn't ready to offer his opinion of Manziel's uneven practice.
''I don't know if I want to stand here every day just walking off the field and evaluate the performance,'' Pettine said. ''Sometimes you think one thing and you get in and watch a tape and your opinion changes completely.''
General manager Ray Farmer also reiterated that Manziel is not facing any off-the-field distractions.
''He's made his mistakes and that's that,'' Farmer said. ''Our focus now is what happens on the field. He's focused, he's committed on football. He's doing his thing here in the building and we're excited about where he's at.''
