Johnny Manziel attempting another comeback, arrives for new Fan Controlled Football league


Johnny Manziel is ready to put on the pads again.

The former NFL bust arrived in Gwinnet, Georgia on Tuesday to begin his quarantine ahead of the debut of the Fan Controlled Football league.

Manziel signed a deal with the Zappers in the FCF, which is a 7-on-7 full contact league played on a 50-yard field where fans control everything from uniforms, logos and even the play-calling.

Games will be played at a special facility in Atlanta.

It will be the first time Manziel stepped on a field since 2019, when he played for the Memphis Express in the now-defunct Alliance of American Football.

The former Cleveland Browns first-round pick has not played in the NFL since 2015 as off-field issues, as well as poor performance on the field, has kept him away from the NFL.

Many former NFL stars and pro athletes are among the owners of the teams in the FCF.

The Zappers are co-owned by Mets pitcher Trevor May, podcast host Bob Menery and 2K Sports digital marketing director Ronnie 2K.

Other owners include Marshawn Lynch, Richard Sherman and WNBA star Renee Montgomery.
