Former Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel signs player agreement with AAF

Johnny Manziel who was released by the CFL's Montreal Alouettes on Feb. 27 now appears set to sign with a team in the Alliance of American Football

Johnny Football could be back on the field soon. Because San Antonio, the team he would have been allocated to, waived his rights, according to Schefter, he will go through the league's waiver system.

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.

Two weeks ago, league co-founder Bill Polian said the AAF had put out "feelers" to Manziel and was in the midst of doing its research on him after he was released from the CFL's Montreal Alouettes. He spent two seasons with the Cleveland Browns after being picked up in the 2014 National Football League draft, but went 2-6 as their starting quarterback.

Memphis, with a 1-5 record, will hold the first waiver claim once Manziel goes through the system. The former Texas A&M Heisman Trophy victor was released from his CFL contract last month, with league officials announcing he 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. He signed with Hamilton after meeting with CFL commissioner Randy Ambrosie in late 2017, and agreeing to meet "certain conditions". He was traded to the Alouettes in 2018 and released on February 27.

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.
