NFL: Hoyer 'securely ahead' of Manziel for Browns' QB

Browns coach Mike Pettine said Brian Hoyer is "securely ahead" in the competition to be Cleveland's starting quarterback this season, but his lead over Johnny Manziel isn't "insurmountable."

After the Browns ended their three-day mandatory minicamp Thursday, Pettine sized up the battle as a friendly fight that will heat up when the team opens training camp next month.

Kaepernick cleared. San Francisco 49ers star quarterback Colin Kaepernick and two other NFL players will not face charges in an incident involving a woman at a Miami hotel, prosecutors announced Thursday.

A memo released by the Miami-Dade County State Attorney's Office said there was insufficient evidence that any crime was committed April 1.

The other players are 49ers wide receiver Quinton Patton and Seattle Seahawks wide receiver Ricardo Lockette.

Falcons on HBO. The Atlanta Falcons will be featured on HBO Sports' documentary series Hard Knocks. The five-part weekly series debuts Aug. 5 and concludes Sept. 2.
