BEREA, Ohio (Cleveland.com) — Browns coach Mike Pettine revealed Wednesday that he knows  Johnny Manziel is frustrated with not playing.

“I can sense it,” said Pettine.

How can he sense it?

“Well, I just think that he’s quiet. I just think you feel it,” said Pettine. “I’d be shocked — maybe I’m imposing it on him — but you feel it because you know what kind of competitor he is. Here’s a guy that’s gone from the past how many falls being out there making plays to standing there and having to watch. The competitor that he is is one of the biggest reasons we brought him here. So if he didn’t feel that way, I’d be shocked.”

Pettine said he hasn’t specifically addressed the matter with the former Heisman Trophy winner.
