Johnny Manziel isn’t ready to give up on his dreams of playing football professionally but based on his recent comments during his Monday appearance on “The Dan Patrick Show,” the former Heisman Trophy winner from Texas A&M is already envisioning what his life will be like once he does hang up his cleats.

The NFL isn’t likely to be calling him soon but if the XFL is willing to give Manziel an opportunity to play, you can expect to see the former Aggie quarterback playing in the league.

“Yeah, I have interest in continuing my football career in whatever capacity that is,” Manziel recently said when asked about playing in the XFL.

If the new football league doesn’t work out for the Heisman Trophy winner, it sounds like Manziel could be making a return to College Station. Dan Patrick asked Manziel what the QB’s plans would be when his playing career came to an end.

“One thing that for sure interests me is back being around Texas A&M, in whatever capacity that is,” Manziel responded. “I have a good relationship with Jimbo Fisher, a good relationship with the school and that’s a place that means a lot to me and I want to tie myself to for the longterm moving forward after my football career would be over.”
