The Montreal Alouettes have released former Heisman Trophy winner and Cleveland Brown Johnny Manziel. The termination of his contract came at the direction of the Canadian Football League after it was discovered that Manziel broke the agreement he had with the CFL that made him eligible for the league.
First reported by Ian Rapoport with this tweet:
The CFL has already stated that they will not register a contract if any other CFL team would try to sign him. So what now for Johnny? He still has his podcast with Barstool Sports, Comeback SZN, and is surely going to return to the United States to explore football opportunities.
I just want him to know that he still has fans here. In fact, I will be rocking his neon orange #2 Browns jersey in Indianapolis this weekend for the NFL Combine. I want to watch him thrive in football again like he did in college. If only there was a professional team in Texas that plays competition similar to college teams…
Dare I say… time for a move to the AAF? I am sure the San Antonio Commanders would love to have him.
