Johnny Manziel has played in the NFL, CFL, and The Spring League.
Teams with the worst records in the league will get the chance to pick him up, according to ESPN. Manziel will join the Memphis Express, who claimed him off waivers.
Former Heisman Trophy victor and NFL burnout Johnny Manziel will get his next chance on a football field in the Alliance of American Football.
The Commanders had the rights to Manziel because he played college football at Texas A&M. Express quarterback Zach Mettenberger was injured Saturday and unable to return to the team's 22-9 loss at Salt Lake and his status is uncertain.
He played just two seasons with the team before he was released. He's their second quarterback this season, after the team started with Christian Hackenberg but later benched the former Penn State quarterback.More news: Global student walkout demands action on climate change
Former Texas A&M quarterback and Heisman Trophy victor Johnny Manziel has signed a player agreement with the Alliance of American football, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.
Manziel is expected to report to the Express on Sunday.
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.
Polian also said he believes Manziel will benefit from "the coaching and mentorship" of Memphis coach Mike Singletary. He was traded to the Alouettes in 2018 and released on February 27. It was his first football action since he was released by the NFL's Cleveland Browns following the 2015 season.
Manziel eventually ended up signing with Hamilton in May 2018 but was unable to get on to the field behind starter Jeremiah Masoli.
