Manziel joins Cleveland Browns as 4th draft pick

Johnny Football has some NFL money to rub between his fingers.

Johnny Manziel agreed to a contract with the Cleveland Browns on Tuesday, becoming the fourth of the team’s six draft picks to do so. Terms were not immediately available.

The former Heisman Trophy winner will enter training camp next month as Cleveland’s No. 2 quarterback behind veteran Brian Hoyer, who has been limited during offseason practices while recovering from offseason knee surgery.

Browns Coach Mike Pettine has stressed that Manziel has some catching up to do, but has made it clear that Hoyer’s lead was not “insurmountable.’’

The Browns moved up in last month’s draft to select the popular and polarizing Manziel with the No. 22 overall pick. Manziel rubbed his fingers together when he walked onto the stage during the draft, his signature “money’’ gesture that has endeared him to some fans and annoyed others critical of his reputation for partying.
