Probably had a few drinks.

Considering last week he was convinced this league was going to fold midseason like the AAF, consider this a vote of confidence.

Like I said, this league needs QB's, and if he and the league are willing, I say go for it.

PFT picked it up...

>>“Oliver Luck,” Manziel wrote. “If ya wanna boost your ratings to another level just send me the contract tomorrow and we’re in there. Like I said YEARS ago… XFL2020 give the people what they want.”

A few hours after tweeting that, however, Manziel deleted his account. So Manziel’s true motives are anyone’s guess. But it remains true that the XFL and Manziel would both benefit from Manziel playing in the league.

The XFL, so far, hasn’t shown much interest in Manziel. But it’s easy to see that changing if the XFL’s TV viewership declines as much in the league’s third weekend as they did in the league’s second weekend. Manziel would instantly become the XFL’s most famous player, and the XFL needs famous players.<<

XFL doesn’t need famous players. It just needs good players. XFL doesn’t need Johnny. Johnny needs the XFL. PFT is really pissing me off. The XFL is having a helluva start to their year.

Yeah and what does it say for the league if (or when) he comes in and bombs like he did in his CFL debut?

Who are you bumping off for him? Matty Iced and Aaron Murray (at least his backups), well yeah--but Perez should at least compete with him, besides is Manziel in NYC a good thing?

When he walked out on the Browns to go party in Vegas for New Years ("concussion" and all that) and pissed off Joe Thomas, which like Edgar Martinez is impossible to do..........hell we goin all in on AB too?

Why are we pining for 2001 moves for the 2020 (and beyond) version? The league is, and should continue to be, more Cardale Jones, PJ Walker, Jordan Ta'amu and the next guys after them.

Although watching Florio's rampant XFL-bashing, other than when he needs to put Jones and Walker over, and his running buddy Chris Simms, he of the 69.1 career passer rating (which he'd fit in in Tampa right now--not just the Vipers) as well as the only QB in the last 20 years to lose a playoff game to the Redskins trying to be some expert does have some comedic value, generally yes.

I’m actually one of the few XFL fans that wouldn’t mind bringing in Johnny. But we don’t NEED him. He can earn a shot thru team 9 tho. Tommy Armstrong I heard may have just signed on with team 9 also?

Johnny should have approached the XFL about playing and signed on to team 9 4-6 weeks ago midway through camp. He's not smart and has money so he can afford not to be.
