Johnny Manziel says his football days are definitely NOT over -- telling TMZ Sports he expects to be on a team next season.
You gotta watch the clip ... Manziel was leaving The Nice Guy in WeHo (with super hot model Abigail Ratchford) when he stopped to talk to our photog.
Johnny not only talked about his football future -- but also gave a shout out to Aggie Nation AND his own mom.
"To my mom back at home in Tyler, TX ... we love you, all of you."
As far as the NFL goes, Manziel is a free agent after being cut by the Browns last week. There are reportedly a few teams interested in signing him.
BONUS -- If you're not familiar with Abigail Ratchford, just watch ... and enjoy!
