Report: Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak has contacted Johnny Manziel

Denver Broncos head coach Gary Kubiak has spoken with Johnny Manziel about possibly joining the team, ESPN reports.

The Broncos' level of interest, however, isn't clear.

Manziel was released by the Cleveland Browns earlier this offseason and faces possible legal issues and league discipline due to an alleged domestic violence incident with his ex-girlfriend in January.

According to ESPN, the Broncos wouldn't make any move for Manziel until they know how those issues are resolved.

Drafted 22nd overall by the Browns in 2014, Manziel's career has been plagued by underwhelming performance on the field and a series of incidents off of it. In 15 games (eight starts), he has passed for 1,675 yards and seven touchdowns, while throwing seven interceptions. He also has rushed for 259 yards and a TD.

The Broncos have been linked to San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick in trade rumors for weeks, and they acquired QB Mark Sanchez from the Philadelphia Eagles in March. After winning the Super Bowl, they lost Peyton Manning to retirement and Brock Osweiler to free agency.

Kubiak also has said Denver plans on drafting a quarterback this year.
