Johnny Manziel may not be welcome in XFL

Johnny Manziel seems to be down with the XFL but Vince McMahon may not want Johnny Football in his new league.

Vince McMahon held a press conference to officially announce the re-launch of the Xtreme Football League. Manziel tweeted as it was happening.

Manziel responded to Pat McAfee, the former NFL punter turned Barstool sports entertainer.

But in response to a question about Manziel, Tim Tebow and Colin Kaepernick being invited to play in the league, McMahon said players with a criminal history – and Manziel was involved in an incident of domestic violence – would be excluded from playing.

“When I said the quality of human being is very important and just as important as the quality of the player what I mean by that you want someone who does not have any criminality whatsoever associated with them,” McMahon said. “In the XFL, even if you have a DUI you will not play in the XFL. That would probably eliminate some of them, not all of them.

“If Tim Tebow wants to play, he could very well play.”
