Ex-NFL QB Johnny Manziel Reportedly Could Sign With CFL Team ‘Soon’

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.
