Johnny Manziel will play organized football once again, at least for two weeks.
The Heisman winner has committed to play in The Spring League 2018, a two-weekend showcase in Austin, Texas, featuring “four teams comprised almost exclusively of players with NFL experience,” according to the event’s website.
