Johnny Football Headed to Canadian Football League
Embattled Heisman Trophy winning quarterback Johnny Manziel will get to play again but this time, he'll be playing for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats of the Canadian Football League.
The former Cleveland Brown signed on the dotted line on Saturday in an effort to get back in the game that he hasn't played since 2015. Manziel will be playing for another NFL alum, head coach June Jones, who said Manziel could be "the best player to ever play up here."
Manziel has had problems with domestic assault charges and substance abuse issues. Recently, the quarterback said he has been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and that he has quit drinking. The CFL has made it clear that Manziel will have to continue to meet league conditions to remain eligible.
I personally hope he's successful with this opportunity to play again. Just remember Johnny, in the CFL you only get 3 downs to get a 1st down!
