Reporters in Texas caught up with Johnny Manziel in Texas on Saturday at the Tristar Houston Sports Collectors Show.  The former NFL, CFL and AAF quarterback is still interested in playing football.

Manziel was asked if he had any interest in playing in the XFL.  The 26-year-old said he is interested in continuing his football career and would love to do so with one of the two XFL teams in Texas.

Houston’s coach June Jones, who coached Manziel in the CFL, has expressed interest in the former Heisman Trophy winner.  He confirmed that the interest is mutual.

The XFL needs some star power and football fans need Johnny Football back on the field.  It’s a perfect match.
