#ComebackSZN rolls on for Johnny Manziel as he attempts to work his way back into the NFL.
In February, we detailed how Manziel was training at The Athlete Factory in San Diego. He looked like he was getting back into playing shape, and one social media clip showed him deadlifting 400+ pounds with little trouble. He’s also been working with noted quarterback trainer George Whitfield Jr., who has trained the likes of Andrew Luck and Jameis Winston.
Now, it looks like Manziel is training alongside New York Giants star receiver Odell Beckham Jr.:
OBJ has long been a client of Jamal Liggin, a Los Angeles-based trainer and the owner of Jamal Liggin Training. Last summer, we detailed the hellacious training regimen OBJ follows under Liggin. His sandpit workouts looked particularly draining:
Liggin has trained a number of other NFL stars, including Jarvis Landry, Marshawn Lynch and Alshon Jeffery. After a recent workout, Beckham posted this photo to Instagram:
“How [you] forget to fill up [with] gas on the road to riches,” Beckham wrote in the caption. Manziel recently wrote that he feels “revitalized” and that these are “exciting times” for him.
Will the New York Giants eventually take a chance on OBJ’s buddy? Johnny Manziel in New York City? I can’t imagine the kind of media circus that show would draw.
