Mike Pettine told reporters on Monday that he'll name his starting quarterback by the third week of the preseason.
Pettine specifically pointed to a photo of Manziel rolling a $20 bill at a bathroom sink.
"I don't want to get into a (public) discussion of every picture that comes out, but I talked to him about it," Pettine told Mary Kay Cabot of The Plain Dealer. "We anticipate this will quiet down once the season starts. As committed as Johnny is to football, this stuff should not be an issue once camp gets underway."
Pettine also noted that Manziel's midsummer "Money Phone" act might not have been current, saying: "I haven't verified it, but somebody told me that it wasn't recent."
Hang on, friends. At long last, we're about to see some football.
