Johnny Manziel hasn’t played professional football since 2015 with the Cleveland Browns, but that soon could change.

Manziel, whose rise and fall from grace has been well-documented, worked out for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats of the Canadian Football League back in August — and he reportedly didn’t impress. But the dual-threat quarterback still could sign with a CFL team, and it might not be long before he does, according to the Houston Chronicle’s Brent Zwerneman.

While Manziel returning to the NFL certainly seems like a long shot, his safest path back to the league likely runs through Canada.

Only Johnny Football knows if his off-field issues truly are behind him. But the 24-year-old likely is hoping the talent that once made him such a tantalizing prospect hasn’t gone anywhere.
