Saturday night is one of the most anticipated preseason nights in NFL history as the world will finally get to see the infamous Johnny Manziel step onto the professional field for the first time as his Cleveland Browns take on the Detroit Lions. At 7:30 PM ET, all of the talking will be done and it’ll be time to see whether or not the former Heisman winner can dazzle the professional crowd just as he did the college one.
And as always, just hours before the game is set to get underway, Manziel was warming up on the field, and he looks as calm as he always has been before showcasing his skills.
Also, the Drake jokes are already popping up from the mainstream NFL media.

Manziel will be the no. 2 quarterback for the Browns tonight, right behind current starter Brian Hoyer.
While many are downplaying the fact that there’s a QB controversy in Cleveland, the fact of the matter is that Hoyer hasn’t shown nearly enough consistent regular season action to secure himself as the starter.
A good performance from Johnny Football, especially starting tonight, could make things rather interesting in Cleveland.
