Johnny Manziel doing football things

Johnny Manziel is spinning it.

According to his Twitter, the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner was throwing passes to star New York Giants receiver Odell Beckham Jr. on Monday.

It’s the first time we’ve seen a glimpse of the 25-year-old with a football in his hands since Manziel started the #ComebackSZN campaign on social media earlier this month. That’s key considering he’s a quarterback.

Manziel has ramped up his training, literally, running inclines.

Jamal Liggin is a performance coach for professional athletes and celebrities including Odell Beckham Jr., Von Miller and Marshawn Lynch.

Manziel has stated #ComebackSZN is happening. The next question is where? The self-imposed deadline of Jan. 31 to get a deal done with the Ticats looms.

“If we cannot reach a deal with Hamilton by this date, we will turn our focus to several other professional options readily available to us,” agent Erik Burkhardt said in an early January statement.

The CFL could be the best spot for Manziel to return to pro football, especially after the XFL may not welcome him when the league begins to play in 2020.

The Manziel watch continues.
