It's 2022 and Johnny Manziel is throwing touchdown passes to Terrell Owens.

Seriously.

The former Cleveland Browns first round NFL Draft pick is playing in the Fan Controlled Football League. He's on the same team as Owens. Saturday night, Manziel found Owens for a touchdown pass in the league.

It's a pretty surreal sight. "if you told me in 2014 that Johnny Manziel would be throwing professional football passes to Terrell Owens I wouldn't know what to say," one fan tweeted.

Manziel says he has a "new perspective" with football. He made his debut in the league on Saturday evening.

Owens, meanwhile, is hoping to get another chance with an NFL team. However, it seems unlikely that it will happen.

Still, it's fun to watch these two playing again.
