BEREA, Ohio -- The Cleveland Browns on Tuesday agreed to terms with QB Johnny Manziel. General Manager Ray Farmer made the announcement.
The Browns now have come to terms with four of their six 2014 draft selections.
The 6-0, 210-pound Manziel was selected with the 22nd overall pick, the second of the Browns’ two first-round selections.
He compiled a 20-6 record as a two-year starter at Texas A&M before foregoing his final two years of eligibility.
He completed 595 of 863 passes for 7,820 yards with 63 touchdowns and 22 interceptions. Manziel added 2,160 rushing yards and 30 scores. He amassed 9,989 yards of total offense, an average of 384.9 per game.
He became the first freshman to win the Heisman trophy and was a finalist the following year. Manziel also became the first player in school history to throw for 3,000 yards in back-to-back seasons (3,706 in 2012 and 4,114 in 2013).
Manziel, who hails from Kerrville, Texas, graduated from Kerrville High School.
