Drake posts picture of Johnny Manziel as a kid

The Drake and Johnny Manziel bromance has taken another step. Apparently Johnny Football has been sending Drake pictures of himself as a kid, and Drake posted one of a young Manziel clutching a football to his Instagram account.

Drake also suggested that there might be a “Draft Day Freestyle.”

Drake has posted his own baby photos previously, could you peg these two as being best bros later.

Speaking of Johnny Football, he is currently trying to trademark the name and has gotten closer.

From ESPN’s Darren Rovell:

On Thursday, the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office sent a letter to Kenneth R. Reynolds Family Investments, which had filed for the “Johnny Football” trademark before Manziel, rejecting its claim that the phrase wasn’t referring to an individual.

“Registration is refused because the applied-for mark consists of or includes a name, portrait, or signature identifying a particular living individual whose written consent to register the mark is not of record,” the examining attorney wrote. To make the case, the attorney attached articles that referred to Manziel as “Johnny Football.”

The little kid clutching the football is all grown up now.
