Johnny Manziel may soon be coming to a football stadium near you.
Manziel, along with other past NFL stars such as Ray Rice and Vince Young have been targeted by the Spring Football League, according to a report from the Associated Press.
The league’s CEO, Brian Woods, commented specifically on Manziel.
“If Johnny Manziel is serious about a future in the NFL, the Spring League is willing to provide him with a platform to prove he’s still relevant,” Woods said.
Manziel said he’s trying to become a better person on Twitter and told ESPN that he has achieved sobriety. Manziel was a first round pick by the Cleveland Browns in 2014 but did not play in the NFL last season after being cut by the Cleveland Browns.
Manziel won a Heisman Trophy at Texas A&M in 2012, the Aggies first year in the league. Since he departed Texas A&M, the team has failed to reach the same heights.
Other former players to have already agreed to play in the game are former Georgia quarterback Hutson Mason, former Oklahoma receiver Jalen Saunders and others. The league is targeting players in their mid-20s but won’t turn down older stars, like Rice and Young.
