Johnny, who recently revealed on Good Morning America he was diagnosed with bipolar disorder, also announced the big news on IG:

In a little over a month I finally get to put the pads back on. Finally get to put some cleats on strap it up and go play ball again. There was a point in time I didn’t know if it would ever happen again. Come rock with me in Texas next month and watch this comeback tour. LETS GOOO!!!

The Spring League will run from March 28-April 15 and consists of four teams largely made up of players with NFL experience. Notable players participating in this include noted soldier Kellen Winslow Jr., Lorenzo Taliaferro, and Zach Sudfeld.
