Browns general manager Ray Farmer took responsibility Thursday for breaking the NFL's rules about text messages - and selecting Johnny Manziel in last year's draft. He wasted no time apologizing for one clear mistake, sending messages to the sideline last season, before telling reporters it was his decision to use the 22nd overall draft pick on the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner. Manziel entered a treatment program earlier this year, leaving significant questions about whether the Browns finally have a long-term answer at the most important position in football. ''Coach (Mike) Pettine has articulated that he wants a starter, and we're going to do the things we've got to do to get him somebody that he feels comfortable with as a starter,'' Farmer said.
