Johnny Manziel traded to Montreal

After being traded to CFL's Montreal Alouettes Johnny Manziel might actually play this time

The quarterback has reportedly been traded from the Tiger-Cats to the Montreal Alouettes, according to TSN.

The Heisman Trophy victor in 2012 and first-round pick of the Cleveland Browns in 2014, Manziel began his CFL journey by backing up Jeremiah Masoli with the Tiger-Cats.

Sherman, who coached the Packers offensive line for two years (1997-98) before returning as head coach in 2000, never actually got the chance to coach Manziel on the field in College Station.

And now the debate can begin as to whether Johnny Manziel can play quarterback in the Canadian Football League or Montreal made a knee-jerk reaction out of desperation.

Manziel famously became the first freshman in NCAA history to win a Heisman in 2012, when he was also named the Associated Press Player of the Year.

And that prompted some football pundits to suggest it was time for Manziel to get some playing time with Hamilton.

In 78 games, Anthony averaged 16.2 points and 5.8 rebounds per game while shooting 40 percent from the floor. The 23-year-old finished last season averaging 5.8 points over 52 games with seven starts.

"We have acquired an exceptional quarterback with undeniable talent", Alouettes general manager Kavis Reed said in a statement, per ESPN. Montreal was already without quarterback Jeff Mathews for four to six weeks because of a foot injury. The former Cleveland Browns 2014 first-round flop was stuck as the backup for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.

Manziel, offensive tackle Tony Washington and offensive lineman Landon Rice were sent to Montreal in exchange for defensive end Jamaal Westerman, wide receiver Chris Williams and first-round picks in 2020 and 2022.

Montreal (1-4) hosts Edmonton on Thursday night.

"With his great mobility, his athletic abilities and his instinct we believe that hewill have a positive impact on our offense".

The Als have been held to 10 points or under in three of those five games while scoring a total of only 69 points. He signed a two-year contract with Hamilton in May. They're hoping Manziel can be the spark that revives Montreal's season.
