Newly reinstated NFL star Josh Gordon is sticking by his close friend Johnny Manziel.

“It’s difficult to take people inside that relationship, but that’s one of my good friends. I’m always going to be there to support him and that’s what I’m trying to do and that’s what he wanted to do for me. We’re definitely two different people headed down two different paths and we’ll all reach our outcome at a different point in time,” Gordon told the media during training camp on Thursday, according to Cleveland.com(RELATED: Meet The Playboy Model Johnny Manziel Is Vacationing With In Mexico [PHOTOS])

Gordon has been suspended from the NFL for over a year, but was dominating in his early years. In his second NFL season he had more than 1,600 receiving yards.
