The Browns have agreed to terms with No. 22 overall pick Johnny Manziel, the club announced. Manziel heads into camp as the No. 2 quarterback behind Brian Hoyer. Terms of the deal were not immediately available.

Browns coach Mike Pettine stressed last week that Hoyer is "securely ahead' of Manziel heading into training camp next month and will be No. 1 on the depth chart, but that his lead is not "insurmountable'' for Manziel.

"It's been hard to evaluate, because Brian hasn't been able to take the 11-on-11 reps, but when we put the depth chart together, Brian will be No. 1,'' Pettine said at the conclusion of mandatory minicamp.

Pettine agrees with general manager Ray Farmer that Hoyer, eight months removed from knee-ligament surgery, is substantially better than Manziel right now -- but that Manziel can catch up during the open competition in camp.

"I think when Ray made the comment, (it was) just because of the circumstances, that Brian had been here for those seven, eight weeks before the draft even started,'' said Pettine. "That was essentially a head start and I don't think it's insurmountable. Brian is securely ahead of him right now, but we will compete and we will decide.

"The issue for us as a staff is finding the right time to name a starter. If you wait too late, then nobody's ready for the opener. If you do it too soon, then it wasn't a true competition. That will be part of our discussions as well as far as 'OK, here's the plan, here's a date that want to go ahead and name him.' ''
