After two years out of football, Johnny Manziel announced on Twitter today that he is going to the CFL. Manziel has signed with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats of the CFL. Manziel last played in the NFL with the Browns in 2015.
Hopefully, for the 25-year-old Manziel, the second chapter will be much better than the first.
The CFL season begins in June.
Made the decision today to sign my contract with the CFL and further my football career after a long break. Very grateful for everyone that’s been supporting me along the way. I believe this is the best opportunity for me moving forward and I’m eager for what the future holds.
