Johnny Manziel is still unemployed as he is still without a team, but the troublesome quarterback has openly stated that he wants to be part of the Denver Broncos, a thought that is still far-fetched from reality.
TMZ managed to catch up with the former Cleveland Brown quarterback over at The Nice Guy resto in Los Angeles and when asked where he would want to play, he responded with great love for the Broncos and the entire organization.
“The Broncos — John Elway, great dude. [Coach Gary] Kubiak, Aggie. Great organization. Anywhere I get picked up, bro, is a blessing. Whatever happens. I love ball. I want to play. That’s the team I want to go to,” Manziel said.
The Broncos has been tagged along with Manziel ever since the quarterback was cut by the Browns last month. Weird as it may sound, Manziel went on to state that he is living together with Broncos star and Super Bowl 50 MVP Von Miller.
“I’m living out here with my guy Von Miller. Everybody knows Von Miller. Super Bowl MVP. My brother. We’re getting our life together,” Manziel told TMZ.
But the Washington Post reported that Mike Klis of the Denver post managed to get to the bottom of the claim and sources close to Miller stated that they are not living in the same house, but only on the same city. What is true is that Miller, who played with Manziel at Texas A&M in college, is very vocal of having Manziel sign with the Broncos and the “brotherly love” is also being extended out by safety T.J. Ward.
“With open arms man. We’re the Denver Broncos. We’re taking charge of everything. So it don’t even matter,” Ward added.
But the Broncos has made it clear that they are not looking at the possibility of signing Manziel even in the future. Head coach Gary Kubiak has already aired his statement that they will work with Mark Sanchez and in house quarterback Trevor Siemian.
Kubiak also added that they are also looking at possible candidates at this year’s NFL Draft to possible augment their quarterback position since the retirement of Peyton Manning and losing Brock Osweiler to free agency.
