Browns head coach Mike Pettine believes that Johnny Manziel's off-field activity will "be a non-story" once training camp starts.
Let the young man get his jollies out of the way in the off-season, I say. So long as he is not arrested or accused of nefarious illegal activity, and is all football once in training camp, then it should be no harm, no foul.ANALYST: Ivar G. Anderson
Fernando Rodney has hit a recent rough patch, but said he's put it behind him.
Rodney's closing job is in danger right now, as they 38-year old has already blown a save and has given up in seven runs 3 1/3 innings. Carson Smith could be next in line for saves should Rodney be removed from the job, though Yoervis Medina is another option in the back of the bullpen. As a closer, Rodney will have to have a short term memory and put the issues behind him, as he has a great track record and the stuff is still there for him to succeed in the ninth inning.
