Manziel ready to settle down with TCU student? Check Instagram first

As NFL training camps get set to kick off, perhaps the most encouraging news Cleveland Browns fans could hear is that first-round draft pick and presumed franchise savior Johnny Manziel appears to be inclined toward settling down.
Well, at least insofar as it relates to becoming a one-woman man, which could be considered a departure from his purported hard-partying ways.
The Browns rookie has been spotted frequently of late with Colleen Crowley, a student at TCU. Ever since the two took in a Boston Red Sox game at Fenway Park together in early July — and reportedly on a handful of occasions before that — it seems that Crowley has been at Johnny Football’s side so often that it lends credence to the speculation that the two are in it for more than just a summertime fling.
Perhaps the most telling indicator that the two are becoming a committed couple came Monday night, when they posted photos of each other getting all snuggly on their respective Instagram accounts.
Manziel posted the below two photos of them coupling up and being all cute and stuff while enjoying an evening out with pals.
Crowley also posted a photo of herself planting a smooch on Manziel close to the same time as Manziel's social media activities.
As an old fogey, this writer is not well-versed in how the younger set goes about articulating hopeless devotion to one another. But given that essentially everything young whippersnappers do these days revolves around selfies, tweets and other assorted social media postings, odds are that these posts depicting syrupy-sweet, lovey-dovey behavior at least mean something.
Of course, Manziel apparently is a guy who loves to play the field, evidenced by his dalliances with model Kyndal Kyaire. And before that, he was spotted out and about in L.A. with another model, Lauren Hanley, all within a period of few months earlier this year.
So perhaps any declaration of a Manziel-Crowley couplehood is premature.
Still, the photos Manziel and Crowley posted Monday night are so darn cute, right? Or, as the kids might say, “Cray cray adorbs.”
They’re still saying that, right?
