Arena Football League Commissioner wants to sign Johnny Manziel for relaunch

The Arena Football is back! I know you are probably asking where did it go, but it did fall pretty hard. Back in the early 2010’s, I was working with the Orlando Predators of the Arena Football League and it was a pretty amazing league. We had some very solid players who are now coaching around the NFL and major colleges.

The AFL is about to relaunch a start up in 2024 under new leadership, and they want Johnny Football to come out of retirement and play.

The new Arena Football League will be made up of 16 teams and have a 10-game season. In a recent interview with TMZ Sports, Lee Hutton III (the first black commissioner in pro sports history) said he wants Manziel to come out and play.

“Absolutely,” Hutton said. “Some of them have received personal [direct messages] from me. I reached out to Johnny Manziel. So, Johnny, I’m a Texas guy. So, if you’re ready to come back and indoors — because you did very well — we will take you. We will find a spot for you.”

The Arena Football League will be on the NFL Network this year as well. So it would be pretty interesting to see Johnny Football back in the game.
