The Memphis Express lost their quarterback, Zach Mettenberger due to an ankle injury, but with the signing of Johnny Manziel anything is possible now.

After a bad breakup with the CFL, Johnny Manziel did not lose much time sitting at home as the AAF would be his next landing spot. It was cloudy early on when trying to decide if Manziel would even be given another chance.

In Week 6 both the Stallions and Express collided against one another, but it was the now 2-4 Stallions that were able to squash the Express, 22-9, dropping their record to 1-5.

Each week that goes by you can feel the tension and pressure starting to build on all these teams, and even though the Express are likely out of playoff contention, their future looks bright with the signing on Johnny Manziel.

Here’s what co-founder and head of football for the Alliance, Bill Polian had to say on the signing of Manziel:

“We are pleased to welcome Johnny Manziel to the Alliance of American Football, which we’ve always described as a league of opportunity for talented players to launch or revitalize their pro football careers.”

That was just part of the large statement on Saturday evening. Going forward we don’t know how much longer it’ll be till we see Manziel in action with the AAF. With a signing like this, there’s no way that you wait to see what you got till next season.

Express’s general manager Will Lewis had this to say on the quarterback situation”

“Obviously in light of our situation with our present quarterback, an injury related issue, we decided we’d look at all options.”

San Antonio had first dibs on Manziel, but decided to pass. Things should get interesting quickly with the signing of a former Heisman winner with a troubled past.
