Johnny Manziel’s Spring League debut set for April 7

Former Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback Johnny Manziel will make his debut in the developmental Spring League on April 7.

The Spring League will play in Austin, Texas, from March 28 to April 15. The league is designed for players hoping to impress NFL scouts.

Manziel threw at the Texas A&M pro day Tuesday. He won the Heisman as a freshman with Texas A&M in 2012 and left school after his sophomore season for the NFL. He was drafted in the first round by the Cleveland Browns but was cut in 2016 and hasn’t played since. The Texas native played nine games with the Browns in two seasons, passing for 1,675 yards with seven touchdowns and seven interceptions.

His Spring League debut will be broadcast on Turner Sports new streaming service “Bleacher Report Live,” which will launch in April.

Manziel’s CFL rights are held by the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and the club will have scouts at The Spring League watching the celebrity quarterback.
