Johnny Manziel has been replaced by Josh McCown Antonio Gates Kids Jersey as the starting quarterback for the Cleveland Browns, the team announced Tuesday.

One week after being named the team's starter, Manziel has been demoted to third-string quarterback for Monday night's game against the Baltimore Ravens after social media posts surfaced this week showing Manziel allegedly partying last weekend in Texas during the team's bye week.

"We all know what happened and what got put out there, and it led to much disappointment, frustration, however you want to term it," Pettine said Tuesday evening on his weekly "The Mike Pettine Show" on the Cleveland Browns Radio Network. "It was something we felt had violated the trust that we had put in him for the bye coming out of the Pittsburgh game."
Pettine said he, offensive coordinator John DeFilippo and quarterbacks coach Kevin O'Connell had spoken with Manziel before the bye to make clear they expected he would handle himself "the right way."

"The bye week would be ... wouldn't use the Rashean Mathis Womens Jersey word 'test,' but that's essentially what it ended up being," Pettine said.

Pettine said the same group of coaches spoke with Manziel after learning of the video posted on social media. The coach added he kept owner Jimmy Haslam and general manager Ray Farmer informed during the decision-making process but called the final decision to demote Manziel "a coaching decision."

"The GM and the owner are certainly two people I want to keep in the loop, but it was simply to inform them of what we had decided," Pettine said.

Pettine's radio show appearance reinforced a statement he released earlier in the day, in which he said he felt let down by his quarterback's behavior given his on-field growth.

"Everyone in this organization wants what is Gary Barnidge Authentic Jersey best for Johnny just like we do for every player in our locker room. I'm especially disappointed in his actions and behavior because he has been working very hard," Pettine said in the statement.

"The improvements from last year to this year have been tremendous, but he still has to consistently demonstrate that he has gained a good understanding of what it takes to be successful at the quarterback position on this level. It goes well beyond the field. We are going to continue to support him in every way possible, but at this point, we've decided it's best to go with Josh as the starter going forward."
