Browns head coach Mike Pettine declared Josh McCown the team's number one quarterback. 

"We’re not going to start talking competition," Pettine said, per the Chronicle-Telegram. "Josh will more than likely be the starter going into camp, and in the foreseeable future I don’t see that changing."

Last year's first-round draft pick, Johnny Manziel, spent 10 weeks in rehab after a disappointing rookie season. Pettine said he didn't need to worry about competing for the starting job at this point. 

"We want him, essentially, with horse blinders on," he said. "Focus on his job, getting up every day, perfecting his craft, whatever it is, homework that the quarterbacks have or come out and working on his footwork, his releases. That he’s much more concerned about himself than really anything else."
