Mike Pettine made it clear before the draft that he'd rather not throw a rookie quarterback into the fire during his first NFL season, but you don't draft Johnny Manziel to clutch a clipboard.
Cleveland's coach told reporters Thursday night that he still believes starting the year with Brian Hoyer at the position is a wise move.
"Whether (Manziel) was taken at No. 4 or going at No. 22, it'll be a competition, and I meant that when I said it."
"I don't think you can hand jobs to people when they come in," Pettine said.
