The Spring League is an elite developmental league and scouting event for professional athletes.

The league is based in Texas, the same state where Manziel was born and raised. 

The season begins on March 28.

The announcement comes just days after Manziel appeared on Good Morning America to talk about the struggles he faced off the field after the Browns dropped him in 2016.
