The former Texas A&M Heisman Trophy victor was released from his CFL contract last month, with league officials announcing he had "contravened the agreement which made him eligible to play in the league". The CFL also reportedly restricted him from signing with any other team.

"We are pleased to welcome Johnny Manziel to Alliance of American Football, which we've always described as a league of opportunity for talented players to launch or revitalize their pro football careers", league co-founder Bill Polian said in a statement Saturday night. When asked about Manziel, Commanders GM Daryl Johnston said that teams generally try to avoid dealing with a "self-inflicted" disruption.

Memphis, which has a 1-5 record and has had trouble with its quarterback situation, will hold the first waiver claim once Manziel goes through the system. The former first-round pick of the Cleveland Browns could be the fourth quarterback to play for the team this season.

Mettenberger had to leave Saturday's 22-9 loss to Salt Lake after suffering an ankle injury early in the game.

James Gunn rehired to direct Guardians of the Galaxy 3

The 2012 Heisman Trophy victor at Texas A&M had his contract with the CFL terminated last month. Mettenberger had replaced Christian Hackenberg as Memphis' starter, so coach Mike Singletary could look to Manziel to lead his squad.

Manziel spent 2018 in Canada, playing five games with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and 11 for the Montreal Alouettes following a midseason trade.

It's unclear when Manziel will make his AAF debut. He spent two seasons with the Cleveland Browns after being picked up in the 2014 National Football League draft, but went 2-6 as their starting quarterback. According to a release from the CFL, Manziel "contravened the agreement which made him eligible to play in the league".
