“They’re going to let the people join this league be who they are and have fun with it and be a little bit more free than what football is sometimes,” Manziel said. “That’s definitely what appealed to me.”

Manziel returns to football after two seasons. He last played in the XFL with the Memphis Express. He also played for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and the Montreal Alouettes during the 2018 Canadian Football League.

He was a first-round draft pick by the Cleveland Browns in the 2014 NFL Draft. Manziel spent two seasons with the Browns, before being released.
