BEREA, Ohio (AP) ó Johnny Manziel hopes the hype around him calms down.


Beaten out by Brian Hoyer to be Clevelandís starter, the Browns rookie quarterback Manziel said Wednesday that heís disappointed he wonít be on the field against Pittsburgh in the season opener on Sept. 7. Manziel knows he didnít 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, ďIím the backup quarterback, I shouldnít be in the spotlight.Ē


Manziel said he wouldnít change anything about his offseason. He was widely criticized for some weekend partying, but insists ďIím still going to continue to have fun in my life and continue to live my life.Ē
