Source: Johnny Manziel, Josh Gordon aren’t roommates

Mike Florio discusses the options for Browns wide receiver Josh Gordon in the aftermath of his petition for reinstatement being denied.

It’s officially much easier to predict the football future of Johnny Manziel than it is to explain his present living arrangements.

Per a source with knowledge of the situation, and contrary to a report from ESPN, Manziel is not currently living with suspended Browns receiver Josh Gordon. ESPN reported on the existence of a Manziel-Gordon apartment-sharing situation on Sunset Boulevard in Los Angeles after Manziel said (incorrectly) that he is living with Broncos linebacker Von Miller.

Miller has denied living with Manziel, and Manziel has since apologized to Miller for dragging him into a bizarre misstatement at best and a flat-out lie at worst from Manziel.

It helps neither Manziel nor Gordon to be tied together at this point in their careers. Gordon’s request for reinstatement to the NFL has been denied, and he can’t apply for reinstatement until August 1. Manziel remains unsigned and, but for Miller’s desire to bring him to Denver, unwanted.
