Browns rookie QB Johnny Manziel took first snap with starters in team drills Monday.
Rein in the enthusiasm, people, rein it in. Of course he's getting time with the first team, but everyone knows that Brian Hoyer will open the season as the Browns starting quarterback. Forget this early-August hype. It doesn't mean anything. As the back-up and given Hoyer's knee issue last year, of course Manziel needs to familiarize himself with the first team. Cleveland may be a bad team, but they're not stupid. Don't blow this up into more than it should be. You'll regret it in your draft when you take Manziel far higher than he should be taken.ANALYST: Howard Bender
Greg Hardy will miss Thursday's OTA for suspension appeal.
The reports are that the newest Cowboys defensive end will get his 10 game suspension reduced significantly. The problem is, no one knows what the league is doing anymore with their penalties. Remember that the league suspended Ray Rice two games for knocking out his fiancee, and Tom Brady four games for allegedly-sorta deflating footballs. Hardy already missed 15 games on the Commissioner's Exempt List last season, which will work in the favor of his appeal. He's currently not slated to return until Week 12. Analysis: Drew Phelps
