  • Johnny Manziel reportedly signs deal to join AAF

After stops in the NFL and Canadian Football League, Johnny Manziel will continue his football career in the Alliance of American Football.

"We completed extensive background work to determine whether it would be appropriate for Johnny to play this season", Polian added, "and after consulting with many people familiar with his situation, we concluded that it would be good for him to resume his pro football career here at The Alliance". The CFL also reportedly restricted him from signing with any other team.

Former Montreal Alouettes quarterback Johnny Manziel signed with the Alliance of American Football on Saturday night and will join the Memphis Express. When asked about Manziel, Commanders GM Daryl Johnston said that teams generally try to avoid dealing with a "self-inflicted" disruption. He will now go through the league's waiver system, as the San Antonio Commanders released his allocation rights.

Teams with the worst records in the league will get the chance to pick him up, according to ESPN. Brandon Silvers filled in for Mettenberger after he exited with an ankle injury in the 22-9 loss to the Stallions.

Manziel had previously said on Barstool Sports' Comeback SZN podcast that he was intrigued by the prospect of playing in either the AAF or the XFL, which begins operation next year.

Manziel spent the 2018 season in the CFL with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and the Montreal Alouettes, where he appeared in eight games, throwing for five touchdowns and seven interceptions.
