Johnny Manziel: New girlfriend Bre Tiesi inspiring comeback bid (vid)

Johnny Manziel may be in the midst of making a serious bid at an NFL comeback, but that doesn’t mean he won’t give credit where credit is due as he tries to resurrect his career.

Manziel took to Instagram recently to praise Bre Tiesi — an Instagram model who also appeared on MTV’s “Wild ‘n Out” — who he has been dating for about three months.

“Without you there is no ComebackSZN, @bre_tiesi,” Manziel writes along with the video posted last week.

Manziel and Tiesi also took in the sights and sounds at the San Diego Zoo last weekend and photographic evidence of the lovey-dovey couple enjoying the outing was also posted to Instagram by Manziel.

“When you know, you know @bre_tiesi,” wrote Manziel.

Manziel, after a series of self-inflicted setbacks to his NFL career — each one seemingly more damaging than the last — seems to have turned himself around to some degree in recent weeks and months.

In January, Manziel cut open a vein in a series of tweets that included critical self-evaluations concerning how he’s conducted himself over the past few years.

And then in February, Manziel, who has been apparently training hard in a bid to convince another team give him a chance, made it clear that all he wants is a second chance at the NFL.

Since then, Manziel has re-signed with former agent Erik Burkhardt and is said to be generating “real interest” among NFL teams, despite his considerable baggage.

All that aside, it certainly appears Manziel is committed to self-improvement in 2017 and leaving a history littered with missteps, mistakes and self-destructive behavior in the past.

Whether the 24-year-old manages to follow through on his goals, however, unfortunately might be another story. But it sure seems like his new girlfriend is helping him along that path.
