Johnny Manziel appears to be quite confident that the Denver Broncos will want him alongside former Philadelphia Eagles star Mark Sanchez to fill in the post vacated by Peyton Manning and Brock Osweiler. The support of Super Bowl 50 MVP Von Miller seems to have given Johnny Football the boost he needed to move forward with his NFL career.

The Johnny Manziel drama has become quite the spectacle among NFL fans. Once tagged as one of the best quarterbacks in the league, the former Heisman Trophy winner is now nowhere near the football greats like Tom Brady, Cam Newton, Peyton Manning, Colin Kaepernick, Tony Romo and Ryan Fitzpatrick. In fact, the popularity of Johnny Football in terms of getting a contract by the start of the next NFL season is slimmer than that of Tim Tebow. However, it seems that none of these causes alarm to Manziel. If his recent antics are to be used as a reference, then it's safe to say that the former Cleveland Browns star has no intention of cleaning up his act anytime soon.

One of the reasons Manziel is reportedly unaffected by the continuous decline of his brand is the solid support of Von Miller. With the Super Bowl 50 MVP by his side, Johnny Football feels that his future in the NFL is nothing but secured. In fact, a previous Gospel Herald report revealed that Miller is even pushing for Manziel to sign with the Denver Broncos.

"I want to help get Johnny back to Johnny Manziel," said Miller of his close buddy. He added, "Johnny Football, that's beside the fact. I want to get Johnny back to being Johnny Manziel. I remember what it was for me when I was in a similar situation, it was the people around me that helped motivate me to get to the same Von that I was."

The Denver Broncos star further shared how the same situation helped shape him become the Super Bowl 50 MVP he is today. Miller revealed how he was hurt when some of his friends and family members walked away from him due to his issues outside the gridiron. Now dubbed as one of the most valuable stars in the NFL, the Denver Broncos player vows to now let Manziel feel the rejection and disappointment he experienced in the past.

Miller continued to say, "He's had people walk out on him. He's had people who have given up on him. I'm not going to be that guy. I've never been that guy. Johnny's my brother." He further shared, "I didn't play with him at Texas A&M, but he's my brother and we have a unique relationship. I'm here to help him no matter what it is. I'm tied to him, good or bad. You can't ever count anybody out and I think everybody who has counted him out is just wrong."

At this point, it remains to be seen how Johnny Football will resurrect his NFL career. Reports are now surfacing that his sponsors, such as Nike, have already dropped him from their roster of stars. Even the more tolerant football teams, such as the Dallas Cowboys, are refusing to get associated with Johnny Manziel out of fear of the backlash. Can Johnny Football still stage a comeback? Will the support of Von Miller be enough to drag him out of the mess?
