Johnny Manziel took to Twitter on Wednesday afternoon to seemingly contradict a TSN report that he and the Ticats are far apart in contract negotiations.
"Nahhh" as in this report is wrong or "Nahhh" as in you're not close?

TSN asked for clarification. Let’s wait for Manziel’s answer…
Manziel has largely stayed away from commenting on negotiations, beyond voicing his support for agent Erik Burkhardt after he issued a statement in early January outlining their expectations and expressing displeasure with the CFL’s neg list system. Burkhardt also included a Jan. 31 deadline to get a deal done with the Ticats, which theoretically expires today.
