Just three weeks after being released by the Montreal Alouettes for violating the team's contract, Manziel signed the Alliance of American Football's Standard Player Agreement, according to ESPN.
Manziel was released by the Montreal Alouettes of the Canadian Football League earlier this month.
The San Antonio Commanders originally held Manziel's territorial rights in the AAF, but have passed on signing the Texas native and former Aggies star, Schefter reported. He was awarded through the AAF's waiver system to the Express, who have a league-worst 1-5 record. The Express lost to the Salt Lake Stallions 22-9 in Week 6, losing quarterback Zach Mettenberger to an apparent ankle injury on their first offensive play.

Johnny Manziel has been signed by the Alliance of American Football and will join the Memphis Express. Other than Orlando, which has Garrett Gilbert at quarterback, most of the league's teams have had some issues at the position. Mettenberger had replaced Christian Hackenberg as Memphis' starter, so coach Mike Singletary could look to Manziel to lead his squad. The former Texas A&M Heisman Trophy victor was released from his CFL contract last month, with league officials announcing he had "contravened the agreement which made him eligible to play in the league". In 2016, a domestic assault charge against Manziel in Dallas was dismissed after he took an anger management course and participated in the NFL's substance abuse program.
He was taken with the No. 22 overall pick in the 2014 National Football League draft by Cleveland.
