What's more, he was also a member of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and Montreal Alouettes in the Canadian Football League (CFL) in the year 2018 and of the Memphis Express of the Alliance of American Football (AAF) in the year 2019.

After his release, he signed with the Express during the AAF's inaugural season, which was cut short when the AAF suspended operations two weeks later.

He did not completely rule out coming out of retirement, praising incoming co-owner Dwayne Johnson and stating "Listen, anything 'The Rock' touches is gonna be gold as always."

Recently in the news, Johnny admitted he had come to grips with something about his short time with the Cleveland Browns while reflecting on his short NFL career. "Looking back on it now, I would say I absolutely, 100% lost their respect. Why wouldn't you? If I was one of them looking back at what I was doing, and your decisions that you make off the field impact if I put food on mine, yeah I'd feel some type of way, a hundred percent," he said in an episode of the YNK Podcast. "I would say we wasted a draft pick to go get this guy who doesn't give a f**k. And that's my only thing in life that I haven't been able to look back and like fully have closure on. ... It's probably one of the only things that I haven't looked back on and been able to be like super, super OK with what happened." Manziel played 14 games with the Browns and had failed stints in the Canadian Football League and the Alliance of American Football.
