Johnny Manziel Has CFL On His Mind

Johnny Manziel is still thinking about the CFL.

A return to the NFL is still the former Heisman Trophy winner's top priority. But if an offer doesn't come this off-season, then the 25-year-old Texan will play in Canada in 2018.

"If something pops up, it pops up," Manziel told reporters Tuesday after throwing at Texas A&M's pro day. "If not and I don't get the opportunity to go back [to NFL] I'm going to go play in the CFL and things are going to be fine.

The Hamilton Tiger-Cats own Manziel's CFL rights and have made a contract offer to his agent, Erik Burkhardt, but the two sides have yet to reach an agreement. The Ticats currently have starter Jeremiah Masoli along with Vernon Adams Jr., Dane Evans and Bryant Moniz under contract.
Manziel drew a crowd at College Station, Texas, as all 32 NFL teams and two from the CFL (Saskatchewan and Montreal) attended Tuesday's workout.

Manziel starred at Texas A&M, capturing the 2012 Heisman Trophy as U.S. college football's top player. He was selected in the first round, No. 22 overall, in the 2014 NFL draft by the Cleveland Browns.
But the Browns released Manziel in March 2016 after he posted a 2-6 record over two tumultuous seasons. Manziel has been out of football since because of off-the-field issues.

Why would the Riders be there? We have a solid group of quarterbacks already! No need to bring this clown in. Can you imagine him and Carter together? No thanks!
