The final matchup saw the Cam Newton team fall despite the overwhelming quarterback drama courtesy of Peyton Manning and Brock Osweiler in the Von Miller squad. Immediately following the Super Bowl 50 win, fans of the Denver Broncos speculated on the faith of the quarterback post with the likes of Colin Kaepernick of the San Francisco 49ers and Ryan Fitzpatrick of the New York Jets getting linked to the team.

The Denver Broncos came off an all-time high when the NFL team beat the Carolina Panthers in the Super Bowl 50. The final matchup saw the Cam Newton team fall despite the overwhelming quarterback drama courtesy of Peyton Manning and Brock Osweiler in the Von Miller squad. Immediately following the Super Bowl 50 win, fans of the Denver Broncos speculated on the faith of the quarterback post with the likes of Colin Kaepernick of the San Francisco 49ers and Ryan Fitzpatrick of the New York Jets getting linked to the team. However, it appears that the highly coveted job might land to an unexpected candidate - Johnny Manziel.

The troubled former Cleveland Browns star is currently out of a job following his controversial stint last season. Johnny Football, who had once garnered interest from the Dallas Cowboys as Tony Romo's sub, spent most of the previous NFL season getting snapped partying with 'Keeping Up With The Kardashians' star Scott Disick. However, the issue that pushed the Cleveland Browns to let go of Manziel was the domestic violence charge filed against him. To date, the issue has yet to be resolved.

While the rest of the NFL community dismissed Johnny Football, it looks like one football team still sees hope in the situation. Recent reports disclosed that Manziel might be under consideration for the quarterback vacancy in the Denver Broncos roster. Will the troubled star land a spot in the Super Bowl 50 roster?

"If I had to make my decision on it, he would already be on the Broncos," said Von Miller of Manziel as a potential quarterback replacement for Peyton Manning and Brock Osweiler. He added, "But we've got guys in the front office that make those decisions, and they put us in championships with those decisions. So I'm just going to follow those guys and have those guys take the lead."

The bond of Manziel with the Super Bowl 50 MVP looks to be extremely tight. Another avenue where the two showed their good relationship is via Instagram. Refuting claims that Johnny Football is living with him, Miller reasserted that he considers the former Cleveland Browns star a "brother."

Miller shared via social media, "Johnny's not staying with me but he is my BROTHER! Like I've said a thousand times, I got his back no matter what!"

Meanwhile, rumors are flying that Miller not only wants Manziel in the quarterback post but also Tim Tebow. As a well-known do-gooder, some fans are speculating that the Super Bowl 50 MVP might be looking for guys who can positively influence his "brother." Taking into consideration the similar backgrounds of both Tebow and Manziel, such as the honor of being Heisman Trophy winners, the entrance of the Christian star in the roster might just be what Johnny Football needs. That is, if the Denver Broncos decide to sign the former Cleveland Browns star and the former Philadelphia Eagles hopeful.
