Johnny Manziel is headed to The Spring League in Austin, Texas to continue his football career.

Manziel announced the news Wednesday morning on Twitter.

He tweeted, “Back in Texas where it all started. I’ll be joining @TheSpringLeague in Austin to get #ComebackSZN started! Can’t wait to get back on the field and show NFL scouts what I can do! #cantwaitforspring.”

The Spring League also announced the news on Twitter.

The description for the league from its website read in part:

  • The Spring League is an elite developmental league & scouting event for professional football talent.
  • All teams in The Spring League utilize the same location, for both practices and games, allowing NFL scouts, GM’s, and player personnel directors with an opportunity to evaluate players in one setting.
  • Nearly all of the players who participate in The Spring League have spent time on an NFL active, practice, or pre-season roster.
  • The Spring League consists of four games, two per team, played in April. The 2018 Spring League season will be played in Austin, Texas, from March 28-April 15.

I don’t know anything about this league, but it sounds like it certainly draws NFL scouts. That’s the only thing Manziel can care about right now.

Lots of people have been doubting Johnny Football, but I’ve been a large believe in #ComebackSZN. It’s now officially on. Getting to The Spring League is the first minor step in a major comeback.

Let’s go!
