CFL won't allow any team to sign Manziel.
Johnny Manziel's time with the Canadian Football League's Montreal Alouettes has come to an end today, and he won't be given an opportunity to sign with another CFL team.
According to a press release, the CFL directed the Alouettes to terminate their contract with Manziel "after it was found that he had contravened the agreement, which made him eligible to play in the league."
“We are disappointed by this turn of events. Johnny was provided a great deal of support by our organization, in collaboration with the CFL, but he has been unable to abide by the terms of his agreement,” said General Manager Kavis Reed in a statement. “We worked with the league and presented alternatives to Johnny, who was unwilling to proceed.”
“We are confident going into the 2019 training camp with a roster of quarterbacks that had played in our system last year and are committed to our team,” added Reed.
Additionally, the CFL has informed all of its clubs that it will not register a contract for Manziel should any club attempt to sign him.
The 26-year old QB signed with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in May of 2018 but was later traded to the Alouettes, where he started eight games and threw for 1,290 yards with just five touchdowns and seven interceptions.
