Canadian Football Approves a Rehabbed Manziel
Go north, young man. That may be the only option for Heisman winner Johnny Manziel, 25, whose career with the Cleveland Browns flamed out in 2016 when substance abuse and domestic violence charges caught up with him. But now he’s been approved to snag a contract by the Canadian Football League. His CFL rights are already owned by the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, who now have ten days to offer him a contract, trade his rights or release him. If signed, Manziel will have to play at least two years in the Great White North.
