Johnny Manziel just might become the first person to ever play in the NFL, the CFL, the AAF, and possibly soon-to-be XFL.
The former Texas A&M superstar Johnny Manziel is seriously running out of sports leagues to showcase his talent and make it back to the NFL and he’s likely on his last shot with the XFL starting up in 2020.
Mike Freeman of Bleacher Report spoke with a source who told him, “the XFL believes it’s only a matter of time before Manziel joins the league.” He added that “the XFL and its teams are simply taking their time in evaluating the former Heisman Trophy winner.”
That is huge for Manziel, especially when you consider the league previously made it clear no players with any criminal history would be welcome.
The league is definitely going to garner a bunch of attention with its revival, but adding Johnny Manziel is just another added spark to a league that is trying to get it right for the second time.
