The new offensive coordinator of the Cleveland Browns told reporters on Thursday that he got to know Manziel in the lead-up to last May's draft and is "looking forward to working with Johnny."
"We're not sure if our starting quarterback's in the building right now or not," DeFilippo said. "If he is, that's great. If he's not, that's great, too. Whoever's in that room is going to be coached hard, be held accountable and be expected to do the things that we expect out of Cleveland Browns quarterbacks."
If DeFilippo can solve that problem -- something no coach has done since the days of Bernie Kosar -- he'll never buy a drink again along the shores of Lake Erie.
