Will Johnny Manziel land in Denver Broncos to replace Peyton Manning? Super Bowl MVP Von Miller has hinted such possibilities.
Veteran Peyton Manning has announced his retirement, which brings in a lot of questions about his replacement with the Denver Broncos. Manziel was Miller’s team-mate during their college football days at Texas A&M. Miller answered a few questions about his college-friend on Monday, according to the CBS Sports.
“You think we’ll see him back in the NFL?” Miller backed his controversial friend and sounded certain about his return in the league.
“Not only will he be back in the league — of course I’m biased — I still feel like he has a lot of game left in him. I feel like the world hasn’t even seen him get down yet. Some of the stuff he was doing in college, he gonna do the exact same thing in the National Football League. I feel like — you know you never want to blame a team — I don’t think he had enough support around him. Who knows? You might see Johnny Manziel in Denver.”
Brock Osweiler may leave Denver via free agency. The Broncos would require a quarterback to fill up the void. If Osweiler stays back, then Denver will also need a back-up QB. Manziel, according to Miller, is very much in the picture. The Browns have decided to release Manziel after he was derailed by charges on domestic violence. The QB did show signs of remarkable improvement prior to that.
Millers’ comments is a great endorsement and show of support for Manziel, who is still going through troubled times. Miller says his support is coming from a place of love for the former Heisman Trophy winner, according to the Larry Brown Sports.
“I love him to death. And he knows the type of support he has. It’s ultimately all up to the individual but it also takes a support system and the type of support Johnny has is second to none. I’m first on that list. Whatever he needs, I’m going to get it done for him.”
