Johnny Manziel traded from CFL’s Hamilton Tiger-Cats to Montreal Alouettes, report says

Johnny Manziel’s time with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats was short lived. 

The quarterback has reportedly been traded from the Tiger-Cats to the Montreal Alouettes, according to TSN. The deal is expected to involve five players and two picks.

Manziel, who signed with the Tiger-Cats in May, has not taken a regular season snap for the CFL team as he served as a backup to starter Jeremiah Masoli. He completed 12 of his 20 passes for 88 yards and a threw his first touchdown pass in Hamilton’s preseason victory over the Alouettes.

Manziel, 25, played only two seasons with the Browns before taking time to deal with personal issues he was facing off the field. He was selected in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft with the 22nd overall pick. He won the Heisman Trophy in 2012 and was a product out of Texas A&M.
