Alabama Crimson Tide quarterback AJ McCarron and Texas A&M Aggies star Johnny Manziel are in the beginning stages of a bromance after meeting during the Super Bowl in New Orleans.

There little getaway will apparently take place in May.
It is interesting because this further shows that rivalries on the field of play do not carry on off the field in today’s age of sports. In the past, two rival quarterbacks going on a beach vacation together may have been frowned upon, but nowadays it is the norm.
