I have no idea what to expect out of Manziel in Memphis. He’s obviously the biggest name in the league, and should draw plenty of eyeballs.

The only question is how long will it take before he hits the field. There are only four games left in the season, and that’s not exactly a ton of time to learn an entirely new offense.

What I do know for sure is that people are interested, and that’s good news for the people running the AAF.

Let’s be realistic and assume he doesn’t play next week, but takes his first snap March 30 against Orlando. If that’s the case, I have no doubt plenty of people will be interested.

For the full list of remaining Express games and the team’s TV schedule, you can find that all here. The AAF just became must-watch viewing for fans around the country.
