Johnny Manziel seems to be a man with a thousand football lives.
The former Heisman trophy winner flamed out of the NFL after the Cleveland Browns released him, but he would soon find his way to the CFL with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and then the Montreal Alouettes.
He was released on Thursday and was essentially banned from the league as he would not be allowed to sign with any other team after violating an agreement with the league.
Fortunately for Manziel, the Alliance of American Football want his services and have been in contact with Manziel’s camp over the past 24 hours, AAF chairman Tom Dundon told USA TODAY Sports on Thursday.
The San Antonio Commanders own Manziel’s rights under the league’s college allocation system, but personnel from all eight AAF teams would be invited to the potential workout, Dundon said.
“Right now, it’s a decision of the GMs, and they can decide what they want to do,” Dundon told USA TODAY Sports.
“If talent-wise this is close, the negative of him is that there is drama with him and you are trying to win games and build a team. The positive is that he brings in fans and attention.”
Shortly after the news broke, Manziel wrote on Twitter that he was “(looking) forward to exploring new options within the United States.”
