This March will mark the football return of former Texas A&M Aggie quarterback Johnny Manziel to the gridiron.

"My goal is to make it back to the NFL and I realize I have to earn that privilege", Manziel said in a statement released by the developmental league. He last played in 2015 and, in fact, is the last quarterback to win a game for the Browns prior to the team's current 1-31 slide under head coach Hue Jackson.

The Spring League consists of four teams competing in two doubleheaders, which will be played in April.

Manziel told "Good Morning America" this week he's since stopped drinking and is being treated for depression and bipolar disorder.

Johnny Manziel's attempt at an NFL comeback has an official start date and place: March 28, that's when the ex-Heisman Trophy victor will participate in The Spring League, a three-week "elite development" league in Austin, Texas. Sometimes you take for granted how much you value something until it's gone.

"We're excited to have such a dynamic player in Johhny Manziel taking part in The Spring League", Brian Woods, CEO of The Spring League, said in a statement. "I miss the competition".

"We believe our platform is the ideal forum for Mr. Manziel to enact his National Football League comeback". Manziel also revealed that he's been sober in the process of working to get back on the football field, and that he has changed his lifestyle dramatically. Do you think that he'll impress some NFL teams and get a shot at the big leagues once again?
