Johnny Manziel signs with AAF, report says

Johnny Football could be back on the field soon.

Just three weeks after being released by the Montreal Alouettes for violating the team’s contract, Manziel signed the Alliance of American Football’s Standard Player Agreement.

He has been assigned to the Memphis Express after going through the league’s waiver process.

The agreement is a three-year deal worth $250,000.

Manziel, 26, was the first freshman to win the Heisman Trophy. He went on to be selected in the first round of the NFL Draft by the Browns in 2014.

He played just two seasons with the team before he was released.

He went on to sign with the Hamilton Tiger Cats of the Canadian Football League in 2017. He was traded to the Alouettes in 2018 and released on Feb. 27.
