Johnny Manziel to Join the Spring League Scouting Event Amid NFL Comeback

Heisman Trophy victor Johnny Manziel has announced he plans to play his first football since the 2015 NFL season by participating in the Spring League.

Manziel will be joining the Spring League scouting event, which will take place in Austin, Texas in early April. Unfortunately for him, his size (6-1, 220 pounds) and demeanor have led to comparisons with a former Browns first-round pick, Johnny Manziel.

"We're excited to have such a dynamic player in Johnny Manziel taking part in the Spring League", said Brian Woods, the league's CEO.

He says he was diagnosed as bipolar about a year ago, and perhaps that discovery has been the catalyst to his recovery and ultimately his renewed focus.

Manziel, who was drafted in 2014, couldn't stay out of trouble and the team cut him after the 2015 season.

Not only will Mayfield be able to figure out what went wrong for Manziel on the field, but he'll be able to learn from his mistakes off of it. The fascinating thing to see would be how many years of success in Canada (and practically by definition, how many years of sobriety) it would take for the National Football League to give Manziel another shot. Where did that get me except out of the NFL?

Brady says there are at least 10,000 bacteria under each footprint of soil, a lot of them still unidentified. They focused specifically on a clade of genes that are found in 1 of every 10 samples.

"Football has been a huge part of my life for as long as I can remember", he said in a statement to Bleacher Report.

"Me and Baker, I feel like have a really cool friendship, and I feel like he's handling [the comparisons] the exact right way", Manziel said.

In 2017, its first season, the Spring League included former NFL players, Kellen Winslow II, Ahmad Bradshaw, Fred Jackson and Ricky Stanzi.

Manziel won the Heisman as a freshman with Texas A&M in 2012 and left school after his sophomore season for the NFL. "We believe our platform is the ideal forum for Mr. Manziel to enact his National Football League comeback". Where did that get me?

Still, he's maintained an optimistic outlook as he continues to pursue a second chance.

As relayed by the Akron Beacon Journal's Nate Ulrich, Manziel said on the podcast "he's not me, and I'm not him", when referring to Mayfield.
