Johnny Manziel tears up the XFL while praising himself


Johnny Manziel tried the XFL on Friday night when asked on Twitter if he would be playing in the new professional football league that starts on Saturday.

Manziel, who played two games for the Memphis Express in the Alliance of American Football last spring before the league ended, said he was fine if he never played football again.

"If I never pick up a ball again, it's all love. I was the brightest and most reliable college football player who ever did it," he tweeted. "Did things the way I ever imagined The game has given me life and I will be grateful forever.

“Many thanks to the people who live with me until the end. What a trip it was. "

It's been a challenging time in Manziel's private life lately.

In December, model Bre Tiesi officially filed for divorce from the former NFL quarterback, according to TMZ Sports. The couple initially broke up this year after only one year of marriage. Tiesi accused Manziel of cheating on her while responding to Instagram comments asking why she removed pictures of the former Browns' first round from her social media.

Despite the many controversial moments in his career, Manziel defiantly insisted that he was in good shape.

"I am the best I have seen in a long time," Manziel tweeted. "Happy, healthy and loving life, but I have time today to heat up your ass if you come up in my mentions.

"Life is too short to spread hatred around the clock. Treat people with respect and wish them the best and keep one foot in front of the other. Everyone doesn't love hatred 2020.

Manziel, who was only 2: 6 in the eight games he started in his two-year NFL career (2014-15) with the Cleveland Browns, was not always in the XFL.

Last June, he seemed open to the idea of ​​playing with the Houston Roughnecks on the XFL and reuniting with his June Jones, head coach and general manager of the Houston XFL team. Prior to his brief assignment in the AAF, Manziel played for Jones while he was in the CFL with the Hamilton Tigercats before moving to the Montreal Alouettes when he couldn't beat starter Jeremiah Masoli.

"I enjoyed every day with coach Jones," Manziel told The Houston Chronicle. “Being on the offensive was the best part of every day. I know that he will be successful wherever he trains.

"It's just a short hop from College Station," he said, referring to the geographical proximity to Texas A&M, where he had his best football moments on the field. “A lot of Aggies drove from Houston to College Station. Houston is a great city that will always be close and expensive to me. "
