As soon as word dropped that Johnny Manziel had been banned, effectively, from Canadian football, we all had a feeling this would happen. It’s now been confirmed: Manziel will play in the AAF, the new feeder league, for the Memphis Express under coach Mike Singletary. Bill Polian, co-founder of the league, claims the league did its leg work before signing him, and he claims it will be a good move for both parties.
The team he joins is 1-5 on the season and the former #1 overall pick could become the fourth QB to suit up for them already this season. Only time will tell if Manziel can get to the level he was ‘supposed’ to reach.
