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

Johnny Manziel reportedly signs deal to join AAF

"We are pleased to welcome Johnny Manziel to Alliance of American Football, which we've always described as a league of opportunity for talented players to launch or revitalize their pro football careers", league co-founder Bill Polian said in a statement.

Manziel most recently played in the Canadian Football League with the Montreal Alouettes, but he was released by the team in February after violating the conditions he agreed to in order to play in the league.

Manziel signed the AAF standard player agreement on Saturday, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter, which will officially allow teams to sign the quarterback. When asked about Manziel, Commanders GM Daryl Johnston said that teams generally try to avoid dealing with a "self-inflicted" disruption.

The Alliance of American Football announced Saturday night that it has signed the quarterback and that he was claimed on waivers by the Memphis Express after the San Antonio Commanders relinquished his rights. The Express, who have struggled offensively all season, are on their third quarterback, starting with former Jets bust Christian Hackenberg, followed by Zach Mettenberger.

Presidency Muhammadu Buhari said in a statement he was "extremely saddened" by the building collapse. "These houses are not safe". These buildings are not safe. "I want to commiserate with the families of those who lost their lives in this collapsed building".

Johnny Manziel has played in the NFL, CFL, and The Spring League. Brandon Silvers filled in for Mettenberger after he exited with an ankle injury in the 22-9 loss to the Stallions.

The 2012 Heisman Trophy victor at Texas A&M had his contract with the CFL terminated last month.

Manziel was a first-round draft pick by Cleveland, but quickly fizzled out there.

Manziel spent the 2018 season in the CFL with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and the Montreal Alouettes, where he appeared in eight games, throwing for five touchdowns and seven interceptions.
