Manziel signs AAF player agreement, source says

Manziel signs AAF player agreement, source says

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.

However, Manziel may not join the Commanders, who had first crack at his rights by way of the Alliance's allocation system.

Manziel was offered the chance to start working out with AAF teams earlier this month, and was reportedly contacted by the league within 24 hours of him being banned from the CFL. Manziel was released by the CFL on February 27, citing Manziel had "contravened the agreement which made him eligible to play in the league".

Memphis, which lost 22-9 to Salt Lake on Saturday, has already used Christian Hackenberg, Zach Mettenberger and former Troy standout Brandon Silvers at quarterback this season.

Manziel immediately becomes one of the biggest name draws in the league as one of the few former NFL first-round picks tied to the league, most notably among them Birmingham running back Trent Richardson. He was traded to the Alouettes in 2018 and released on February 27.

He went on to sign with the Hamilton Tiger Cats of the Canadian Football League in 2017. He was arrested in 2016 on a domestic violence charge, which was later dropped in exchange for his undergoing counseling. He entered the 2013 National Football League draft, and was selected No. 22 overall by the Browns.
