MEMPHIS Jarvis Landry Jersey , Tenn. (AP) — Johnny Manziel says he remains confident in his ability to play football “at any level” as the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner attempts another comeback, this time with the Alliance of American Football’s Memphis Express.An introductory news conference was held Tuesday in Memphis for Manziel, who agreed over the weekend to join the new league. The former first-round draft pick out of Texas A&M dealt with a series of off-field issues during his stints in the NFL and CFL.“My confidence level is high,” Manziel said. “I believe I still have a unique skill set and still have the ability to play at any level anywhere.”Manziel’s rights in the AAF belonged to the San Antonio Commanders, but they declined to sign him. He was awarded through the league’s waiver system to the Express, who have a league-worst 1-5 record.He joins the spring league for its inaugural season less than a month after the CFL terminated his contract with the Montreal Alouettes. CFL officials also informed the league’s other eight teams that they wouldn’t register a contract for Manziel if any tried to sign him.CFL Commissioner Randy Ambrosie said Manziel “had violated one of the conditions we had set for him to be in our league” without offering specifics.Manziel had sought treatment for anger management and alcohol abuse as part of his acquittal on a 2016 charge of domestic violence.Express coach Mike Singletary was happy to take a chance on the guy who earned the nickname “Johnny Football” while dazzling Southeastern Conference crowds with his combination of passing and running prowess.“Our guys are excited, our team is excited and I feel that many of the people here in Memphis are excited,” Singletary said.Manziel said he is refocusing his life and believes playing football again will help.“I’ve done a lot of soul searching and a lot of looking at myself in the mirror and coming to the realization that when I’m on a football field and on a team, my life is substantially better,” he said.Manziel went 2-6 as a starter with Montreal last season and completed 64.2 percent of his passes for 1,290 yards with five touchdowns and seven interceptions. He also ran for 215 yards on 29 carries.His pro career began with the Cleveland Browns, who selected him with the 22nd overall pick in the 2014 draft. Manziel made two starts in 2014 and six more in 2015 before the Browns released him in March 2016.Manziel completed just 57 percent of his career pass attempts. He threw seven touchdown passes and seven interceptions.His arrival could boost a Memphis team that has dealt with adversity at the quarterback position.Zach Mettenberger replaced Christian Hackenberg as the Express’ starting QB early in the season. Mettenberger injured an ankle Saturday on the first play from scrimmage and was unable to return in the team’s 22-9 loss at Salt Lake. He was replaced by Brandon Silvers.“In my eyes and in my mind Genard Avery Color Rush Jersey , I believe I’m here for a reason,” Manziel said. “This is a great fit for me.”FOX Fantasy AutoForm a Racing Team, Compete for PrizesPlay Now! One week is a long time in the career of a rookie quarterback, and for Josh Allen, Sam Darnold, Baker Mayfield and Josh Rosen, seven days made a big difference.A week after the four quarterbacks taken in the top 10 in this year’s draft all lost, the young passers rebounded, made big plays and went 4-0 on Sunday.It wasn’t always pretty. Mayfield was the only one of the four to throw for more than 200 yards, but his Cleveland Browns still scored just 12 points in 70 minutes of football in their overtime victory over the Baltimore Ravens. Mayfield, the No. 1 pick in the draft, went 25 of 43 for 342 yards with one touchdown and one interception.The other three completed 10 passes each.Darnold and Rosen completed less than 50 percent of their throws https://www.brownsfanshop.com/Austin-Corbett-Jersey , although Darnold threw for three touchdowns in the New York Jets‘ 34-16 win over the Denver Broncos, including a 76-yarder to Robby Anderson.“Every single week, we can do that,” Darnold said. “I’m just really excited for next week.”Aside from the 1987 strike season with replacement players, there have only been three other seasons in which four or more rookie QBs have won in the same week — 1974, 2010 and 2012. It happened multiple times in 2012, including a week when five rookies were winners — Nick Foles, Robert Griffin III, Andrew Luck, Brandon Weeden and Russell Wilson.Allen went 10 for 19 for 82 yards and an interception on Sunday as the Buffalo Bills outlasted the Tennessee Titans 13-12.Allen is now 2-2 as a starter, while Mayfield improved to 2-1 and Darnold to 2-3.And Rosen got his first win in his second career start since he took over for Sam Bradford, throwing a 75-yard touchdown pass to Christian Kirk on Arizona’s first play from scrimmage. He didn’t do much the rest of the way Nick Chubb Jersey , going 10 of 25 for 170 yards, but he avoided mistakes as the Cardinals beat the injury-riddled San Francisco 49ers 28-16.Rosen, the outspoken former UCLA player, was the last of the four rookies drafted, and he said the other teams made mistakes when they didn’t take him. He was also the last to make his debut this season. But the Cardinals’ starting job is his to lose now.Allen took over for the ineffective Nate Peterman in the Bills’ first game, a blowout loss to the Ravens, and has started ever since. Darnold opened the season as the starter but was on a three-game losing streak before the Jets came through on Sunday.Mayfield has been the splashiest thus far, bringing excitement to Cleveland that befits his status as the top pick. His only loss since taking over for Tyrod Taylor was a 45-42 overtime shootout at Oakland last week.“We have a team right now that is starting to believe in themselves, and rightfully so,” Mayfield said. “I take a lot of pride in the culture change and being positive, always moving forward and doing your job no matter what the situation is. That was big for us.”
