When it comes to Johnny Manziel, the Cleveland Browns apparently are trying to put the toothpaste back in the tube.

Attempting to limit the glare that will be following their first-round draft pick, the Browns reportedly want to keep national media away from their rookie minicamp this weekend. The New York Post’s Bart Hubbuch wrote that he was denied a credential to cover Johnny Football with the explanation that the club “wants to keep a ‘tight grip’ on its new quarterback and keep the attention from turning into a frenzy.”

“A team spokesman said the Browns — most likely, new coach Mike Pettine, a former Jets assistant — had watched how the Tim Tebow situation was handled by the Jets and wanted to avoid a repeat,” Hubbuch wrote.
