Johnny Manziel’s Comeback Gets A MAJOR Development. It’s Great News

David Hookstead | Reporter

Johnny Manziel was reportedly traded Sunday night from the Hamilton Tiger-Cats to the Montreal Alouettes, according to multiple reports.

TSN’s Duane Forde was the first to break the news that Manziel would soon find himself playing for a new CFL team.

The news was also confirmed by David Naylor.

This is outstanding news for people everywhere waiting for Manziel to see the field north of the border. He was bottled up on the bench in Hamilton, but his time sitting is likely over. I spoke to somebody tonight after the trade went down familiar with the CFL, and he told me Johnny Football will likely be under center starting in no less than two weeks. He might get a week to learn the playbook and then he’s golden as the starter, according to the my guy up in Canada. (RELATED: JOHNNY MANZIEL TALKS ABOUT WHAT FOOTBALL IN CANADA IS LIKE)

It’s also worth noting that the Alouettes are coached by Mike Sherman, who recruited Manziel to A&M. You can safely assume the two can work well together.

Check back for more developments on this situation. It looks like we’re finally going to get Manziel time in Canada!
