BEREA, Ohio (AP) – Johnny Manziel hopes the hype around him calms down, now that veteran Brian Hoyer has officially been named the Browns’ starting quarterback.

The rookie says he’s disappointed he won’t be on the field against Pittsburgh in the season opener on Sept. 7. Manziel knows he didn’t do enough during training camp and the preseason to win the job over Hoyer, who overcame a serious knee injury and then held off the first-round draft pick to keep the job.

Manziel believes the focus should be on Hoyer, saying, “I’m the backup quarterback, I shouldn’t be in the spotlight.”

Manziel said he wouldn’t change anything about his offseason. He was widely criticized for some weekend partying, but insists “I’m still going to continue to have fun in my life and continue to live my life.”
