Johnny Manziel Tweets He Wants In The XFL, Then Deletes His Twitter Account

NFL-great Johnny Manziel, still grasping at straws for attention on Twitter had this to say last night in a Tweet directed at XFL Commissioner Oliver Luck.

Last week, a 27-year-old quarterback who still goes by Johnny had some harsh criticisms for a league that has never played into the nonsense of allowing him in.

“ComebackSZN still alive if ya’ll ain’t know. Just not playing for another league that’s going to fold on you midway through the season.”

Johnny Manziel, who last played in the Alliance of American Football has been on what he calls his “ComebackSZN” since 2016. He’s made stops all across North America. Manziel played 16 games in the Canadian Football League split between Hamilton and Montreal in 2018.

He’s been grasping at relevance ever since his two-game AAF career ended with a historic stat line of eight pass attempts, five completions, and an interception. A magnificent “SZN” for someone on his comeback tour.

Manziel, who would be the first person to tell you he won the Heisman Trophy in 2012, was back on his phone last night tweeting a message for Oliver Luck, the XFL’s Commissioner.

The Tweet Everyone Is Talking About

According to Manziel, he’s the one-man fix to the XFL’s ratings, which seem to be doing just fine. Ratings expectations were surpassed in week one, and the league put forth a strong showing on cable channels in week two.

Of course, by talking about the disgraced athlete, we’re giving him all he wants. The XFL could always create a team of hasty disgraced athletes that will talk about a league that’s spurned them time and time-again. That would be a two-man roster of WR Antonio Brown and QB Johnny Manziel. But the chances of that are 0.00%, and that’s being generous.

    I say give him a chance. If he busts again, so be it. But he’s better than several XFL quarterbacks.

    His 15 minutes ended years ago. He needs to be in the dustbin of football history.

    Johnny Football is a “Has Been”. His overinflated ego has always been his downfall. He should just continue to sit the bench in the NFL.

    Johnny Doucheball still thinks of himself first and foremost. If the XFL doesn’t want to be the Browns so they are keeping as far away from that train wreck as possible.

    You forgot about Colin Kaepernick as backup to Johnny Manziel!

    Need a Loser League for him and several others.

    The top 4 QBs in the XFL are already better than him by a country mile. I question if he’s better than Cornelius and Flowers in TB. The only QB he’s better than is McGloin, who is total garbage.
