When Johnny Manziel isn't out taking risqué beach photographs with his fiancée, he is still working to get back in football shape. This week, he threw some passes to NFL superstar Odell Beckham Jr.

TMZ reported that Manziel looked good while throwing with Beckham, who is fresh off signing a record endorsement deal with Nike.

The two hung out with appropriately named sneaker designer Kickasso, who posted a photo from the workout, which has since been deleted, but is captured in the above tweet.

We're told Manziel and OBJ hit the gridiron for some passing drills while hanging with Odell's custom cleat artist, Kickasso ... and we're told the ex-Browns QB was firing the ball around -- lookin' like Johnny Football again.

Odell -- and few other receivers -- ran routes while Manziel threw them passes. Word is his arm looked strong, and his feet looked fast.

Back in March, Manziel had reportedly made football his "absolute focus" once again. We haven't seen a ton of Manziel on the practice field since then, but good for him getting some reps in with a Pro Bowler. The Giants would probably rather have Beckham catching passes from Eli Manning at the team's OTAs, which he has missed up until this point, but that's neither here nor there. Beckham will reportedly be back with his team tomorrow, according to ESPN.
