CLEVELAND -- The excitement over Johnny Manziel is contagious in Cleveland, and it's been going strong since Thursday night.

From super fans to novices, almost everyone seems to be in agreement across the city that Johnny Football is what Cleveland needs.

Channel 3 News talked to dozens of people Friday to hear what they had to say.

"I'm pumped man. I can't wait for them to bring him out, see what he does. We haven't had this excitement for a QB in a while," one fan said.

Most people say Manziel's skills are important, but the hype he comes with helps, too.

"We need the performance on the field, but right now the buzz in the city is great. It's great for the city," another fan said.

Even for the few people that have their doubts about Johnny Football, nearly everyone agrees this is a positive move for the city.

"I think it's the shot in the arm Cleveland needs. He's got a little bit of an edge to him, and I think that's going to be good for the town, and I'm excited about it," a fan said.
