Quarterback Johnny Manziel's chances of playing in the NFL this season are very much in doubt, but he has a fallback.

Commissioner Scott Butera of the Arena Football League says it has a place for him.

"We could provide a strong platform for him to demonstrate that he is back," Butera told TMZ Sports. "We would also work with him and provide him whatever help he needed to live a healthy life."

Manziel, who is unsigned after being released by the Cleveland Browns in March, was suspended for the first four games of next season by the NFL earlier this week.

In addition, Manziel faces further potential discipline from the league for violations of its personal conduct policy if he does sign with a team. His domestic assault case in Dallas is pending.

TMZ Sports could not reach Manziel for comment.
