Contrary to what he told TMZ over the weekend, free agent quarterback Johnny Manziel’s new roommate is former Browns teammate Josh Gordon, not Broncos linebacker Von Miller, according to an ESPN report.
However, a Pro Football Talk report Tuesday claimed Manziel is not living with Gordon, either.
Manziel told TMZ in a video on Saturday night that he was rooming with Miller, his former Texas A&M Aggies teammate, in Hollywood.
“I’m living out here with my guy, Von Miller,” Manziel said. “Everybody knows Von Miller. Super Bowl MVP, Von Miller, my brother. I’m living with him right now.
“We’re getting our lives together, bro.”
Manziel also said in the video that he wants to continue playing football, and that it would be a “blessing” to be picked up by an NFL team.
Miller has been firm in supporting Manziel through his string of controversies, and said last month that the former Browns quarterback may wind up in Denver. The Super Bowl MVP said on Friday if it were up to him, Manziel would “already be with the Broncos.”
Broncos coach Gary Kubiak has reportedly reached out to Manziel, who was released by Cleveland at the beginning of the off-season.
