Manziel signs with new Alliance league, will join Memphis

As of this moment Manziel does not have a team, but he will go through the AAF waiver system since the San Antonio Commanders released his college allocation rights.

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

"We are pleased to welcome Johnny Manziel to Alliance of American Football, which we've always described as a league of opportunity for talented players to launch or revitalize their pro football careers", Alliance co-founder Bill Polian said in a statement released by the league.

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

The 26-year-old former Heisman Trophy victor last played for the Montreal Alouettes in 2018, where he threw for almost 1,300 yards, five touchdowns and seven interceptions in eight games. Every team in the AAF will now have a chance to sign him in reverse order of the current standings, with the Memphis Express (1-5) getting first priority. The Express, who have struggled offensively all season, are on their third quarterback, starting with former Jets bust Christian Hackenberg, followed by Zach Mettenberger. He was 2-6 as a starter with the Montreal Alouettes last season, completing 106 of 165 passes (64.2 percent) for 1,290 yards with five TDs and seven interceptions. The CFL also effectively barred Manziel from joining any other team in the league.

Manziel was suspended by the NFL in 2016 for violating the league's substance abuse policy, but never pursued playing in the league again. It was his first football action since he was released by the NFL's Cleveland Browns following the 2015 season. He went on to be selected in the first round of the NFL Draft by the Browns in 2014.
