DALLAS (105.3 The Fan) -- The Alliance of American Football will suspend operations on Tuesday, according to multiple reports.

The league has not decided to fold as of now, but it appears to be heading in that direction.

The future of the league has been in question for some time. Owner Tom Dundon unsuccessfully sought a partnership with the NFL. Dundon made the decision to suspend operations despite opposition from league co-founders Charlie Ebersol and Bill Polian, per Darren Rovell.

Later Tuesday, Johnny Manziel, who played in two games with the AAF's Memphis Express, weighed in on the reports that the league would be closing.
