Johnny Manziel on FCF debut: I feel super washed-up but still had a blast

Johnny Manziel made his much-anticipated return to football on Saturday in the Fan Controlled Football league. 

Manziel and the Zappers fell 48-44 to the Beasts, but the former Cleveland Browns quarterback was the talk of the game. He completed just one pass while doing most of his damage on the ground, running for a large gain on his first snap of the game. 

After the game, Manziel admitted that he felt washed-up. However, he described the experience as the "most fun" he's had in a while. 

"Feels like I'm super washed-up but still had a blast,'" he said, according to USA Today's Josh Peter. "You see me get caught from behind, too? Times have changed. We're definitely in 2021."

Although the Zappers lost their season-opener, Manziel has high hopes for the remainder of the year. 

"The product will keep getting better as the weeks go on. Good start even with the loss. You know, win or lose, we booze on the Zappers," Manziel said.

Before he took the field on Saturday, Manziel said he wasn't using the FCF as a way to make an NFL comeback.
