Johnny Manziel has decided to continue on his comeback trail by heading up north. Manziel announced Saturday that he has decided to sign his contract with the CFL’s Hamilton Tiger-Cats. The Tiger Cats who open their training camp Sunday, are expected to formally announce Manziel later today.
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.

Manziel has not played professional football since being realeased from the CLeveland Brown back in March 2016. He did not play organized football at all in 2017, and only played in the developmental Spring League last month. However, Manziel told Barstool Sports, he knows there will be a learning curve.
“It’s going to be a learning curve,” Manziel said in an interview with Barstool Sports. “I think it’ll be fun. It’s definitely not the NFL, but there have been guys who’ve gone up there and have come back.”
