Johnny Manziel Returning For Fan-Based Startup League

Johnny Manziel has agreed to resume his playing career with a startup league called Fan Controlled Football, he told ESPN this week.

The league, scheduled to begin play soon, will feature 7-on-7 games where fans set rosters, call plays and interact in a blend of traditional and esports environments.

“The more I heard about what this was going to be, the more I felt it was going to be something that was just very fun,” Manziel said.

“It’s going to be very fan-oriented and something I could get behind without being extremely, extremely, extremely serious, the way that my football career has been in the past.”

Manziel, 28, last played football in April 2019 for the Alliance of American Football and also has played in The Spring League and the Canadian Football League since the Cleveland Browns released him in 2015.
