Johnny Manziel appears to have had a change of heart of his football career.
The former NFL quarterback is reportedly in “serious talks” to sign with the Zappers of the new Fan Controlled Football league, which is set to begin play in February 2021.
TMZ Sports dropped the news that Manziel is in discussions to join the team co-owned by comedian Bob Menery and New York Mets pitcher Trevor May.
“You’re in the feed with the owners. They have advice, but you vote on the calls,” the league’s official website reads. “Select the best play and it’s relayed right to the QB. Top fans on leaderboard have the most voting power.”
The four-team, arena-style league also counts former NFL running back Marshawn Lynch, legendary boxer Mike Tyson and rapper Quavo among its other owners.
Manziel last played for the AAF’s Memphis Express in 2019 before the league went bankrupt. He never signed on to play for the XFL.
