BEREA, Ohio (AP) - Browns rookie quarterback Johnny Manziel says he's not feeling any extra pressure as he prepares for Monday night's exhibition game at Washington.
Manziel and Brian Hoyer have been locked in a competition to be Cleveland's starter for weeks, and the second preseason game against the Redskins could determine which of them starts the season opener at Pittsburgh on Sept. 7.
Manziel said Saturday that he's ''not ready for Pittsburgh right now'' but only because he lacks experience.
Browns coach Mike Pettine plans to meet with his staff and pick a starter Tuesday.
Although Manziel appears to be line to be Cleveland's starter at some point in the future, Hoyer says he hasn't concerned himself with trade speculation and is ''looking forward to being the starting quarterback.''
