Johnny Manziel's football career might not be over just yet.  Despite the former first-round pick saying he was finished with the game he is in talks to make a return to professional football.

According to TMZ Sports, Manziel is in serious talks with a team in the brand new Fan Controlled Football league.

From TMZ Sports:

We're told the 28-year-old is close to inking a deal with the new "Fan Controlled Football" league, which is set to debut in Feb. 2021.

FYI, the FCF is an arena football-style league consisting of 4 teams where almost everything -- including the play calls -- is picked by the fans.

So far, HUGE names like Quavo, Mike Tyson and Marshawn Lynch have all signed on to be team owners and the league has a deal for the games to stream live on Twitch.

This is exactly the kind of league Manziel could dominate in.  A bunch of used car salesman don't stand a chance against the former Heisman Trophy winner.

This will be amazing to watch.  A flashback to when Manziel was at the height of his Johnny Football powers.
