Johnny Manziel may not be done with pro football after all — he’s in “serious talks” to join a new league, TMZ Sports has learned.

We’re told the 28-year-old is close to inking a deal with the new “Fan Controlled Football” league, which is set to debut in Feb. 2021.

Fan Controlled Football is a startup sports league where fans make all the decisions for their team, including team branding, personnel decisions, and real-time play calling. Teams will be headed by celebrities including Quavo, Bob Menery, Marshawn Lynch and Mike Tyson.

Apparently, Johnny Football is being recruited by Bob Menery for his FCF team.

A league spokesperson tells us Manziel is currently in talks with comedian Bob Menery — who co-owns the Zappers team with Mets pitcher Trevor May.
