Denver Broncos star linebacker and Super Bowl 50 MVP Von Miller wants Johnny Manziel in Denver, but also trusts the front office.
Von Miller wants Johnny Manziel in Denver to play for the Broncos yesterday.
This is not the first time Miller has made known — publicly — his desire for Manziel to be a member of the Denver Broncos. Their careers at Texas A&M did not overlap, as Miller was already winning defensive rookie of the year honors while Manziel was redshirting as a freshman at Texas A&M.
That said, the two are the biggest household names to play at A&M in recent years, and have apparently formed a pretty close bond.
And who are we to disagree with Von Miller, the Super Bowl MVP?
I’m not going to.
Listen, I’m just as wary of Manziel as the next person, but let’s get a few things straight here. He’s not going to cost hardly anything. He’s not going to cost the Broncos in terms of compensatory picks next year, since he was waived by Cleveland. He’s got everything to lose if he doesn’t perform well. As we all know with Von — everyone deserves a second chance.
What’s more, the Broncos aren’t going to have Manziel coming in to be the starter. He would compete for the third job with the team, possibly the 4th if the Broncos get really wild with the QB spot this year. Manziel also is close to Gary Kubiak, and despite reports that the Broncos are not interested in signing Manziel, that could change between now and training camp.

Why not bring him in on a no-risk look? There are no strings attached for the Broncos, and Manziel is a talented/troubled kid who needs some guidance and good coaching.
I think Denver can provide that.
I’m not going to sit here and pound the table for Manziel to come to Denver, but I’m with Miller on this one.
Why not just take a shot?
