It’s official! Johnny Manziel is joining the AAF to play for the Memphis Express. A few weeks ago I talked about why the AAF should sign Johnny Manziel and this episode explores why this is great for the upstart league. Either way this is big for the league.
The AAF has reportedly shown interest in Johnny Manziel who was recently barred from the CFL. We have a official statement from the league on their interest in the former first round pick and why it makes sense for the league to bring Manziel in.
Johnny Manziel has not only been released in the CFL but barred by the league. The 22nd overall pick in the 2014 NFL Draft has not played in the NFL since 2015 and has been known for his issues off the field. However, should the AAF give him a shot? I break down why it would be a low risk potential high reward situation for the AAF to bring in Manziel.
Carolina Hurricanes owner Tom Dundon has invested $250 Million into the AAF after reports of the league struggling to meet payroll. While many have been saying this is a bad sign for the league, I talk about how Dundon’s investment shows faith in the upstart league and why the Alliance is like any starting business.
The first week of the AAF is in the books. The new league had a great first weekend in terms of ratings and quality of football on the field. On this episode I recap the first week of the Alliance of American Football and talk about what things they are doing to make this league a success. We also look at what great changes this league has already made.
The Alliance of American Football has had their first official draft and you may recognize a few quarterbacks that will enter the expansion league in 2019.
