Description: The Browns have named Brian Hoyer the starting quarterback for Week 1, according to clevelandbrowns.com. "He was the clear leader from the beginning," coach Mike Pettine said. "We've maintained all along that if it was close, I would prefer to go with the more experienced player. Brian has done a great job in the meeting rooms and with his teammates on the practice field and in the locker room."
Insight: Hoyer started three games last season but tore his ACL early in the third one. In the two games in which Hoyer played heavily, tight end Jordan Cameron had 16 catches for 157 yards and four touchdowns on 23 targets. If Hoyer doesn't get off to a good start in the Browns' first three games (at Pittsburgh, vs. New Orleans, vs. Baltimore), we could see the team make the switch to Johnny Manziel during the Week 4 bye.
