The Alliance of American Football folded last week just a few months after the league's debut.

While some players from the league have found opportunities in the NFL, most have not. Among the players wondering what will happen after the AAF shuttered its doors is former college football star John Manziel - formerly Johnny Manziel.

The former Texas A&M star found himself out of the job after the AAF closed down. After getting kicked out of the CFL, Manziel's opportunities to continue in the game he loves are dwindling.

Will the NFL come calling? Perhaps, but there is another option on the table - one Manziel seems born for.

On Tuesday afternoon, Pro Football Talk asked XFL commissioner Oliver Luck if the league would consider signing Manziel.

"If he is able to meet our standards and if our coaches think he’s one of the top quarterbacks out there that can help us. Certainly we have no reason not to believe he couldn’t be in the mix. But again it’s really up to our coaches in terms of the quarterbacks they wanna take a look at."

Over the past year, Manziel played in the Spring League, the CFL and the AAF.

Now he's looking for an opportunity to continue his football career and the XFL could be the perfect spot.
