Manziel has signed the AAF's standard player agreement, according to a report by ESPN's Adam Schefter. As a result, he's landed with the 1-5 Memphis Express, CBS Sports' Ben Kercheval confirms.

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.

Johnny Manziel is headed back to the United States to play football, and it will be in Memphis, Tennessee.

That was not before Barca had scored a second as the faultless Arthur Melo played an angled pass into Suarez, who wriggled clear. That is likely to cost them at least £8.8m if he makes an early Nou Camp exit.

Manziel signed a deal with the AAF's Memphis Express, the team announced on Saturday night.

San Antonio would have seemed a logical home for the former Heisman Trophy victor out of Texas A&M, who was a first-round pick of the Cleveland Browns in 2014.

No other specifics about Manziel's release were provided by the franchise. They have already tried their hand at former National Football League quarterbacks Christian Hackenberg and Zach Mettenberger, but obviously that hasn't worked out very well. Christian Hackenberg, Zach Mettenberger and Brandon Silvers have all played quarterback already this season for the Express.

After numerous personal issues and problems, Manziel signed with the Hamilton Ti-Cats of the CFL last season. The Express next plays vs. Birmingham on March 24 in Memphis.

Memphis is coached by Hall of Famer and former National Football League coach Mike Singletary, so it's worth wondering how well he'll mesh with Manziel. He'll be immediately eligible to play with his new team. In a conference call with reporters two weeks ago, AAF Head of Football Bill Polian said the league's due diligence on Manziel was roughly 50 percent complete.
