BEREA, Ohio (AP) - The Cleveland Browns are limiting media access to Johnny Manziel's appearance this weekend at the team's rookie minicamp.
Hoping to avoid a media circus around Manziel, the Browns are allowing only local media members - and some select national outlets - to be at the Texas A&M quarterback's first practices as an NFL player. The Browns selected Manziel in the first round of last week's draft.
Since drafting Manziel, the team has been inundated with requests to interview college football's biggest star.
Reporters and photographers will only watch the first 15 minutes when players do stretching exercises and individual drills. Also, first-year coach Mike Pettine has decided to close Sunday's practice.
