Johnny Manziel was kicked out of the Canadian Football League on Wednesday for reasons that have yet to be released by the league. The Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback could be playing elsewhere soon, though.

The former Cleveland Browns quarterback, who spent about a year in the CFL, could be heading back to the United States to play football.

The Alliance of American Football might make the most sense, as the league debuted earlier this year and features several former prominent college players.

Manziel has reportedly been in contact with the league, too.

The AAF is waiting to make a move until they find out why Manziel was kicked out of the CFL, though.

"Update: Johnny Manziel has been in touch with the AAF about possibly playing for the league (his rights are with San Antonio). Told AAF not moving on anything, if they do, until they find out why he was cut loose + to make sure he’s free and clear from Alouettes," Darren Rovell reports.

Manziel released the following statement on Wednesday night: "I want to thank Coach Sherman, my teammates, and the CFL fans. My time there reestablished my love for the game of football and the work that goes into it. I look forward to exploring new options within the United States."

Stay tuned.
