Two years ago, Johnny Manziel was a Cleveland Browns first-round pick. Now, he’s apparently watching the NFL draft from a bar in Columbus, Ohio.

The free-agent quarterback is supposedly killing time before Justin Bieber’s Purpose World Tour touches down at the Schottenstein Center.

While there’s no definite way to confirm Johnny Football is the one rocking the white bandanna or if the photo is from Thursday night, the one up top isn’t the only picture:

Now if you'll excuse me you have distracted from my creative process @JManziel2

There's also this picture:

@bustedcoverage here's another one from slightly different angle https://t.co/pcyw3W7ST4

Busted Coverage also has texts that claim Manziel and Bieber will be hitting the same club after the show.

It’s jarring to see how much has changed for Johnny Football since this day:

If there was any lingering doubt that it was indeed Manziel pictured at the Columbus bar, his own response to guy who tweeted the photo clears the air (Warning: The following content contains NSFW language):

As it turns out, Will Burge, the man behind the tweet, wasn't even at the bar. At least that's what he said:

@WillBurge should have just said it to my face instead of sitting across from us tweeting away. Pussy
