Johnny Manziel Is Now Front Flipping Off Roofs Into Pools

Videos by OutKick

Johnny Manziel, the athlete, IS BACK and all it took for me to confirm that was the black and white front flip off a roof into a pool Instagram Story he posted during Sunday Funday with the boys. This is easily the most athletic thing I’ve seen Johnny do since he jumped off a cliff back in May. You could even say the level of difficulty here is higher since it incorporates a roof, a bunch of concrete, a shallow pool and a very small landing zone.

Add in the fact that Johnny pulled off a front flip during a jump with the boys and you have yourself a guy who still has that God-given athletic talent. Watch his boys follow him off the roof. Are they going front flips? No way, they’re just hoping to stick the landing without breaking a leg.

Now let’s get down to the other business of the day: would Johnny Manziel consider a comeback in a Rock-owned XFL? Manziel took a shot at the Vince McMahon-owned XFL back in February, saying he had no interest in playing for a league that would fold halfway through the season. Does that change with The Rock in charge? Looks like the guy still has the feet to elude a defender or two.

This is where I have to add a disclaimer: don’t go attempting this front flip at home. Leave this to the professionals like Johnny and people you see jumping off cliffs during Red Bull events. 

This was back in May:
