Over the weekend, as we've reported, troubled former Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel told TMZ he's rooming with Von Miller while the latter is living in the Los Angeles area to compete on Dancing With the Stars.
Nope, Von Miller retorts.
But that doesn't mean he's thrown Manziel under the team bus.
Indeed, he expresses his support for Johnny Football, whom he's been talking up as a potential solution to the Broncos' quarterback problems — an idea embraced by pretty much no one.
Here's the video of Manziel gabbing with TMZ outside a West Hollywood nightspot this past Saturday, April 9:
During the chat, Manziel announced, "I'm living out here with my guy Von Miller. Everybody knows Von Miller. Super Bowl MVP Von Miller. My brother. I'm living with him right now."

When the TMZ reporter made reference to the Broncos, Manziel didn't shy away from the subject — and he made note that coach Gary Kubiak also played his college football at Texas A&M.
In his words: "The Denver Broncos...John Elway, great dude. Kubiak — Aggie, my man. Aggie, my man. Listen...great organization."
How much of what Manziel said was accurate? Well, reports suggest that Kubiak and Manziel have spoken. But as for the living arrangements, Miller debunked his assertions, albeit in the gentlest way possible — via a hilarious Instagram post of the sort for which he's justly renowned.

Those matching outfits are adorable — but the thought of Manziel wearing a Broncos uniform that matches Von's makes our blood run cold.
Live with that, Johnny.
