Cleveland coach Mike Pettine said he's not worried about the popular rookie's wild off-field behavior carrying into the season, and he's determined not to let any outside influences affect his decision in picking either Manziel or veteran Brian Hoyer to be his starting quarterback. Pettine, who will open his first training camp on Saturday, discussed Manziel, Pro Bowl wide receiver Josh Gordon's clouded situation and several other topics during an interview with The Associated Press on Wednesday. Manziel, the former Texas A&M star nicknamed ''Johnny Football'' for his dazzling skills, made headlines throughout the offseason with his weekend partying. Pettine said he's aware of the photo, and during his recent vacation, he called Manziel to discuss the young QB's conduct.
