Johnny Manziel Traded to Montreal
Johnny Manziel may consistently see playing time on a football field in the near future.
The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have agreed to trade Manziel to the Montreal Alouettes, according to Duane Ford of TSN.
Alouettes head coach Mike Sherman knows Manziel well, having coached him at Texas A&M. Manziel’s redshirt freshman season in 2011 was Sherman’s final season coaching the Aggies.
With the worst offense in the CFL, the Alouettes will likely give immediate playing time to Manziel. They have started three quarterbacks this season–Drew Willy, Jeff Mathews and Matt Shiltz. No success followed those quarterbacks, so Montreal turned to the former Heisman Trophy winner.
Dave Naylor, also of TSN, said offensive linemen Tony Washington and Landon Rice are joining Manziel going to Montreal, while the Als are giving up defensive end Jamaal Westerman, receiver Chris Williams and two first-round picks in 2020 and 2021.
The Ticats stuck with Jeremiah Masoli as their starting quarterback over Manziel, and he’s continued to play well under Head Coach June Jones, most recently tying a CFL record with nine straight 300-yard passing games.https://www.myfantasysportstalk.com/johnny-manziel-traded-to-montreal/https://i2.wp.com/www.myfantasysportstalk.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/johnny-manziel-cfl.jpg?fit=770%2C433&ssl=1https://i2.wp.com/www.myfantasysportstalk.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/07/johnny-manziel-cfl.jpg?resize=150%2C150&ssl=1NFLRecent PostsCFL,Hamilton Tiger Cats,Johnny Manziel,Johnny Manziel Traded,Montreal Alouettes,NFLJohnny Manziel may consistently see playing time on a football field in the near future.
