Johnny Manziel traded to Montreal Alouettes

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

Sherman was the head coach at Texas A&M from 2008-2011, and Manziel was offered a scholarship from his staff and spent his freshman year learning from Sherman in 2011.

The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have traded the former Heisman Trophy victor to the Montreal Alouettes in a deal that involves five players and two picks, TSN's Duane Forde reports. The Alouettes are now sitting in last place in the CFL's East Division with a 1-4 record, including an offense that ranks last in the league in points scored and rushing yards, is tied for last in turnovers, and is seventh of nine teams in passing yards.

In a bid to fix the league's worst offense, the quarterback-starved franchise traded for the 25-year old Texan on Sunday evening.

The Alouettes wasted little time promoting their acquisition of the former Cleveland Browns quarterback and Heisman Trophy-winner.

The Tiger-Cats, coached by former SMU coach June Jones, held Manziel's rights this spring as he attempted to make his way back to the NFL.

Manziel, through his agent, thanked Hamilton after the trade. Vernon Adams Jr., Matthew Shiltz and Drew Willy are Montreal's QBs, all of whom have seen action this season. Montreal was already without quarterback Jeff Mathews for four to six weeks because of a foot injury.


"We have acquired an exceptional quarterback with undeniable talent", Montreal GM Kavis Reed said in a statement.

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

According to TSN, the Als also acquire a pair of offensive linemen, Tony Washington and Landon Rice.

The Als have been held to 10 points or under in three of those five games while scoring a total of only 69 points.

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). The quarterback eventually signed with Hamilton in May.
