Abigail Ratchford has denied early reports that she and football free agent Johnny Manziel are an “item” and insisted that they are just “friends.”
TMZ caught up with Ratchford and asked her about her supposed “relationship” with Manziel which she quickly answered that they are not a couple and described the beleaguered quarterback as a “nice guy.”
Reports of the two being spotted getting off a bar in Los Angeles at around 2 a.m. quickly spread like wildfire. Ratchford gained media attention with her seductive social media posts and being spotted with Manziel really spiked attention on her.
“He’s a nice guy, really funny we’re just friends, though,” Ratchford said.
Manziel was reported to have landed in Miami on board a private jet together with friends. Onlookers were hoping to see Ratchford too but the social media model, who dreams of becoming a real model, posted on her twitter account that she was at home watching movies.
Staying in tonight watching movies and wearing flannels ☺️ . Is it weird that im excited ??!

Manziel was cut off by the Cleveland Browns due to his off the field activities that includes clubbing and with his ongoing court hearing on an alleged assault charge that involved his ex-girlfriend Colleen Crowley.
Since being a free agent, Manziel has been reported being courted by the Denver Broncos, New York Jets and Dallas Cowboys but none of the teams have yet made a move as they unless Manziel gets professional help as well.
Manziel as reported by nypost is hiring a new agent, Drew Rosenhaus, after Erik Burkhardt publicly announced that he would no longer represent him. The 49-year old agent who also owns Rosehaus Sports, has been representing NFL players for over 25 years and has negotiated over $2 billion of contracts.
Notable players Rosenhaus has represented or represents include Chad Johnson, Frank Gore, Rex Grossman, Rob Gronkowski, LeSean McCoy, Jimmy Smith, Plaxico Burress, Pete Stoyanovich, and Warren Sapp.
