After his tenure as an NFL QB ended following a lackluster stint as a Cleveland Brown filled with numerous drama filled incidents, Johnny Manziel tried his hand at the Canadian Football League.
He was promptlyg kicked out of the league in his second year.
Adam Schefter of ESPN is now reporting that Manziel has signed a standard player agreement with the Aliance of American Football, widely known as the AAF.

Per Schefter, Manziel will go through the waiver system, with the worst team getting dibs on him, and so on.
The Memphis Express currently has the worst record, at 1-5. The Salt Lake Stallions are 2-4.
Manziel recently was released by the Montreal Alouettes of the CFL and in turn banned from the Canadian league. Last year, he played in the Spring League, a scaled-down development league with a handful of teams and a handful of games in April.
A first-round pick of the Browns in 2014, Manziel spent only two seasons in the NFL amid concerns regarding his off-field habits and his commitment to the game.
