Johnny Manziel reportedly signs deal to join AAF

Johnny Manziel reportedly signs deal to join AAF

Johnny Manziel has signed a player agreement with the AAF and will join the Memphis Express, according to a release from the Alliance.

Manziel was suspended by the NFL in 2016 for violating the league's substance abuse policy, but never pursued playing in the league again.

The 2012 Heisman Trophy victor will go through the AAF waiver system, per Schefter, after the San Antonio Commanders renounced his college allocation rights. According to a release from the CFL, Manziel "contravened the agreement which made him eligible to play in the league".

Memphis, which lost 22-9 to Salt Lake on Saturday, has already used Christian Hackenberg, Zach Mettenberger and former Troy standout Brandon Silvers at quarterback this season.

The Commanders had the rights to Manziel because he played college football at Texas A&M. The former first-round pick of the Cleveland Browns could be the fourth quarterback to play for the team this season.

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

The statement from the Alliance said that Manziel "will report to Memphis tomorrow, where we all believe he'll benefit from the coaching and mentorship of Mike Singletary". Other than Orlando, which has Garrett Gilbert at quarterback, most of the league's teams have had some issues at the position. AAF chairman Tom Dundon said earlier this month that Manziel would not receive any special treatment in the league, and will get the same three-year, $250,000 deal that every player gets.

The eight-team AAF is midway through its inaugural season this spring.

He was taken with the No. 22 overall pick in the 2014 National Football League draft by Cleveland.
