Johnny Football heads to Montreal

On Sunday, the Tiger-Cats traded the former Heisman Trophy victor to the Montreal Alouettes, according to Duane Ford of TSN.

The Canadian Football League's Hamilton Tiger-Cats traded Manziel to the Montreal Alouettes on Sunday as part of a blockbuster deal that included four other players and two draft picks. Even though Hamilton has opened the CFL season with a 2-3 record, starting quarterback Jeremy Masoli ranks second in the CFL with 1,562 passing yards and hasn't opened much room for Manziel to get a shot.

Manziel, 25, made headlines across North America when he signed a two-year contract with Hamilton prior to the start of training camp.

The 2012 Heisman Trophy victor at Texas A&M was 21-of-32 for 168 yards and a touchdown in two CFL exhibition games with Hamilton.

Manziel never got to play for current Montreal coach Sherman (right) who recruited him at Texas A&M.

The Johnny Manziel era of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats is reportedly over.

Judge says climate issues the purview of federal government, tosses NYC lawsuit
District Judge William Alsup put the kibosh to a suit by San Francisco and Oakland, on similar grounds. Keenan said the lawsuit implicates countless foreign governments and their laws and policies.

"We have acquired an exceptional quarterback with undeniable talent", said general manager Kavis Reed in a statement. Vernon Adams Jr., Matthew Shiltz and Drew Willy are Montreal's QBs, all of whom have seen action this season.

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.

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

Sherman and the Alouettes have the scored the fewest points in the CFL this season.

Westerman also played in 58 career National Football League games with the New York Jets (2009-11), Arizona Cardinals (2012), Indianapolis Colts (2012), Buffalo Bills (2013) and Pittsburgh Steelers (2013). They're hoping Manziel can be the spark that revives Montreal's season.
