Johnny Manziel takes shot at XFL

Johnny Manziel CFL
The XFL makes its return to action on Saturday, and perhaps surprisingly, Johnny Manziel won’t be a part of it despite his efforts to get back into football.

Manziel was last seen in early 2018 playing in the now-defunct Alliance of American Football, which fell apart after he’d played only two games in the league. That experience appears to have colored Manziel’s opinions, as he openly admitted that he didn’t want to play in a league he feared would not last in a Twitter post Friday.

In another tweet, Manziel was in a reflective mood.

Manziel initially had interest in the XFL, but nothing ever came of it, suggesting that perhaps the interest wasn’t mutual. The quarterback’s concerns about the league may be valid, but with good TV deals and lots of money, it should be able to keep itself steady for far longer than the AAF did. Whether Manziel changes his tune if the league is successful remains to be seen.
