The last time we saw former Heisman Trophy winning quarterback Johnny Manziel, he was plying his trade with the newly-formed
FCF Zappers of the Fan Controlled Football League. But Manziel appears to be eyeing a new team to lend his services for 2022.
In a recent interview, Manziel announced that he intends to play for the FCF again this coming year
But he wants to play for the defending champion FCF Wild Aces, run by newly-minted owner and comedian Druski.
“Only coming out of retirement for @Druski2Funny and Shoulda Been Athletics,” Manziel said on Instagram, via TMZ.
Johnny Manziel won the Heisman Trophy with the Aggies in 2012 and parlayed his college dominance into being a first-round pick by the Cleveland Browns in the 2014 NFL Draft.
But after two controversy-filled seasons, Manziel was cut following a domestic violence incident. After a year out of football, he tried to make a comeback in the CFL and later the short-lived AAF.
Despite being only 29 years old, it appears that Manziel has put the NFL well-behind him. Maybe that’s for the best.
