ESPN is now confirming what Mark Passwaters of Rivals.com tweeted earlier today.
Ok, for those of you freaking out: I have it on very good authority Johnny Manziel was not drunk and kicked out of the Manning camp.— Mark Passwaters (@themarkup) July 14, 2013
According to the ESPN article, a camp spokesman released the following statement: "Johnny Manziel did participate in some activities in the 2013 Manning Passing Academy as a college counselor/coach," the statement said. "After missing and being late for practice assignments, Johnny explained that he had been feeling ill. Consequently, we agreed that it was in everyone's best interest for him to go home a day early."
Peyton Manning also offered a comment. "I enjoyed meeting Johnny," said Broncos quarterback Peyton Manning "I can remember a 20-year-old Eli [Manning] missing a meeting and catching some flak. We always have counselors who leave early. Johnny was great with the campers for the time he was here. He had to leave early. I wish him the best and I want him to come back as a counselor next year."
