Cleveland Browns QB Brian Hoyer's extension would be "a very difficult deal to do," according to Hoyer's agent, Joe Linta. Linta added that they are open to talking with the team but are also content with waiting. It had previously been reported that the Browns are interested in extending Hoyer's contract, which is in its final year.
Fantasy Tip: Hoyer's value is difficult to pinpoint with a legitimate quarterback competition going on in Cleveland with rookie Johnny Manziel. Hoyer played well when he started last season. That being said, he should still be drafted as backup if he does start.

Cleveland Browns QB Brian Hoyer deserves to be the team's starting quarterback heading into Week 1 this season, according to LB Paul Kruger. "In my mind, Hoyer's the guy," Kruger said. "Hoyer came in, won us four games, unfortunately got hurt. The guy was on fire when he was healthy and he's proven himself at a different level and has worked extremely hard."
Fantasy Tip: Hoyer has QB2 potential based on matchups if he can hold off Johnny Manziel in training camp and preseason. However, he's a risk as your backup because of the QB competition.

Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel must study the team's playbook before training camp next month if he's going to have a realistic chance to unseat QB Brian Hoyer as the starting quarterback, according to head coach Mike Pettine. "I think he shouldn't concern himself so much where Brian is, but where he is," the coach said. "He's going to have plenty of tape to study -- his own work, the team work, opponent's tape, a whole volume of Redskins tape. The more he familiarizes himself with that, the better off he'll be."
Fantasy Tip: This much we know: Manziel is behind Hoyer in the QB competition. It'll likely stay that way unless Manziel makes significant strides in training camp and the preseason. The team won't rush Manziel into a starting role.

Cleveland Browns QB Brian Hoyer has showed his advantage over QB Johnny Manziel in practices with his ability to quickly scan the defense and go through his progressions, then anticipate his receivers coming open and deliver the ball accurately. Of note, though, is that head coach Mike Pettine continues to keep defenders from getting too close to Hoyer in team drills. "Manziel may be just a little bit late, but that's what you'd expect. He's only been in the offense a month and a half," WR Anthony Armstrong said.
However, the coaches aren't disappointed with Manziel's play in organized team activities. "He's getting more comfortable in the huddle, calling the plays," Pettine said. "I think he's got a very nice touch with the deep ball. We've added some of the zone read stuff that Kyle's run with RG3 in Washington and he's done a nice job handling that. He makes improvement every day."
Fantasy Tip: This is precisely the reason why the Browns have penciled in Hoyer as the starter heading into Week 1, for now. That isn't to say that Manziel can't move ahead of him in training camp and the preseason, but it's unlikely, for now.

Cleveland Browns head coach Mike Pettine said QB Brian Hoyer will enter training camp as the No. 1 quarterback, but QB Johnny Manziel will also get first-team snaps and Hoyer's lead is not insurmountable.
