Johnny Manziel will get in a game for the first time in Canada this week Willie Young Jersey , but he’ll be coming off the bench as a backup as the Canadian Football League preseason kicks off.

Hamilton Tiger-Cats coach June Jones says last year’s starter, Jeremiah Masoli, 鈥渁bsolutely鈥?remains the starter both for the preseason opener on Friday and for the regular season opener on June 16.

鈥淢asoli is going to play until I feel good about it,鈥?Jones said of the starters’ playing time in the preseason game. 鈥淎nd then the rest of the game will be whatever we decide 鈥?15 plays each, or whatever.鈥?/p>

Jones said he likes what he sees from Manziel, but Manziel is not ready to run the full offense yet.

“His footwork has gotten a lot better. When things break down he’s doing what we ask. All those things,” Jones said. “It’ll be a while I’m sure before he’s comfortable with all the routes we’re running Bradley Roby Jersey , but I bet if we had the first [string] guys in there with him he’d come along a lot faster.”

Manziel seems to understand that.

“I’m going to have to earn my stripes up here,” Manziel said. “I’m going to have to work extremely hard to do what I want, and that’s come and play at a high level.”

Manziel’s long-term goal is to get back in the NFL. But first he’s going to have to show he can start in the CFL. He hasn’t done that yet.

New Vikings quarterback Kirk Cousins knows he needs to be working right now.

But he’s also been around long enough to know this is the last chance he’s going to have for months to get any downtime.

Via Ben Goessling of the Minneapolis Star Tribune, Cousins acknowledged the challenge of walking into a new team full of new receivers, with a new coordinator and a new playbook.

鈥淚t鈥檚 a bit like drinking through a firehose right now,鈥?Cousins said. 鈥淚 need to use the five or six weeks of the summer to go back. All the stuff I didn鈥檛 catch, go back through and see that I had starred this Jerry Hughes Jersey , I had check-marked this as something to go back to when we had time, rather than take time when we were so busy. I鈥檒l make a list, probably get on the phone with coach [John] DeFilippo or give coach [Kevin] Stefanski an email and just go through it all to get each question answered over the summer.鈥?/p>

But after six years in the league, he’s also well aware of what happens when he does get back to work in late July.

鈥淚t鈥檚 a balance for me, and I鈥檝e had to learn this after playing the last few years,鈥?Cousins said. 鈥淟ast year we got to like Week Two, and because of how much I was grinding all camp and even in the summer DeMarcus Ware Jersey , I felt like we were in Week 12. I couldn鈥檛 believe that we were only in Week Two because I had treated July and August like it was game day. You have to pace yourself a little bit.

“Because I feel a little behind the eight ball and am learning the offense, I do need to be in it every day, but there also needs to be a healthy balance of getting away, catching your breath, and getting a change of scenery, knowing that when we come back at the end of July we still have six more weeks before Week One. I鈥檒l definitely get away, relax Barry Church Jersey , and also just stay in it every day for a few minutes so I don鈥檛 lose what I鈥檝e gained.鈥?/p>

Pacing himself will be vital, because with the money the Vikings spent on him, they’re planning on keeping him busy well past the end of the regular season.
