Johnny Manziel and the Cleveland Browns have agreed to terms on a contract.
The Browns have signed their number 22 overall pick, a quarterback out of Texas A&M that I don't know if you've heard of, Johnny Manziel. Apparently he's kind of a big deal. He signs a four year deal that includes a fifth-year club option for 2018. Manziel was seen taking most of the 11-on-11 reps through OTAs and minicamp, but only because the team was being careful with Brian Hoyer coming off his torn ACL. Hoyer will enter training camp as the team's number 1 quarterback but Manziel will have a chance to fight for the job.ANALYST: Drew Phelps
Jose Abreu was 0-for-4 on Saturday ending his seventeen game hitting streak.
During his seventeen hitting streak, Jose Abreu hit .318 and was only four short of his career high set last year in his rookie campaign. But he is now hitting .283 on the season and has fallen short on the power numbers so far this year. Abreu is hitting more ground balls (49.1%) this year yet his home run to fly ball ratio has fallen nine percentage points from 26.9 in 2014 to 17.1 this season. Since the whole offense has struggled, it is exacerbated when their best hitter is not hitting on all cylinders either. Abreu is solid, but maybe not worthy of the first round status he achieved after one season in the majors. Analysis: Greg Jewett
