It said it would not honor a contract signed with any other CFL team but did not disclose Manziel's specific contractual violations.

The Commanders had the rights to Manziel because he played college football at Texas A&M. The Alouettes released Manziel in early 2019 when CFL announced Manziel had "contravened the agreement which made him eligible to play in the league".

After stops in the NFL and Canadian Football League, Johnny Manziel will continue his football career in the Alliance of American Football.

Johnny Manziel is officially joining the AAF. The Express now boast a 1-5 record, and were the first team available to claim Manziel based on the league's waiver system.

The eight-team AAF is midway through its inaugural season this spring.

The Express have struggled to find a successful quarterback so far this year, which could provide Manziel a quick opportunity to take the field.

Former Texas A&M quarterback and Heisman Trophy victor Johnny Manziel has signed a player agreement with the Alliance of American football, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

They also lost quarterback Zach Mettenberger on Saturday, who left their 22-9 loss to the Salt Lake Stallions on the first play of the game with an ankle injury. In his first game for Montreal, he threw four interceptions on 11-of-20 passing for 104 yards. He washed out of the National Football League less than two years after the Cleveland Browns selected him in the first round, making just eight starts and throwing as many interceptions as touchdowns (seven).

Just weeks after he was released by his Canadian Football League team and essentially banned from signing anywhere else, the former Heisman Trophy victor gets yet another shot to show that he has something left in the tank.
