Johnny Manziel interested in playing for an XFL team in Texas

Johnny Manziel CFL

Johnny Manziel is still ready and eager to resume his football career, and now he’s eyeing the XFL.

The new league will have teams in Houston and Dallas, and both options appeal to Manziel due to their proximity to College Station, where Manziel played his college ball. The Houston team will also be run by June Jones, who coached Manziel during his brief CFL stint. All these factors mean that Manziel would love to play for Houston or Dallas if the opportunity arises.

Manziel has been open about his desire to join the league in the past, but he’s gotten more specific here. It remains to be seen if the XFL will extend the opportunity to him, as there’s no indication that’s happened yet.
