Netflix appears to have an upcoming documentary on former Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel in the works.

The streaming service's verified Twitter account shared a video of Manziel sitting in a chair with a crew member clapping a clapperboard next to his head on Friday (September 2).

The video was shared in response to a Twitter user who wrote that Manziel's Heisman victory being included in the recent Manti Te'o documentary felt "like a tease for the inevitable Netflix doc that'll be done on that guy."

Manziel was college football's most polarizing player during his dominant run at Texas A&M, becoming the first freshman to win the Heisman Trophy, as well as being a consensus All-American and winning the Davey O'Brien and Manning awards and the Associated Press, Sporting News and SEC Offensive Player of the Year awards, while leading the Aggies to an 11-2 (6-2 SEC) overall record -- which included an upset of eventual national champion Alabama -- in 2012.

Manziel was selected by the Cleveland Browns at No. 22 overall in the 2014 NFL Draft, but was limited to just eight starts in 14 appearances during his two-year NFL career, which coincided with numerous controversies and legal issues.

The Texas native has since played for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats (2018) and Montreal Alouettes (2018) of the Canadian Football League; the Memphis Express of the defunct Alliance of American Football; and the FCF Zappers (2021-present) of the Fan Controlled Football League, having won the league's People's Champion award in 2022.
