The CFL has banned quarterback Johnny Manziel

Johnny Manziel

The CFL says Manziel cannot sign with another team in the league.

Alouettes GM Kavis Reed said the team is "disappointed" and referenced "a great deal of support" from the Alouettes, but couldn't come to an agreement on a very vague situation.

Manziel started eight games for Montreal, passing 1,290 yards on 106 of 165 passing.

The Cleveland Browns selected the Texas A&M product No. 22 overall in the 2014 NFL Draft, but he lasted only two seasons with the team.

The Montreal Alouettes released a statement on Wednesday, Feb. 27, announcing that they had cut Manziel from the team following a directive by the CFL to terminate his contract.

Manziel also said his time in the CFL "reestablished" his love for football, and he looked forward to exploring new options in the U.S. A source familiar with the matter does not believe the contract violations were related to an attempt by Manziel to play in a US league, ESPN reported. "But Mr. Manziel violated a term and we all understood those terms and we have to be compliant with them".

As we try and connect the dots for what may have triggered the CFL's jettisoning of Manziel, we must note the issues in his past.

Prior to that, the league went through a lengthy process to determine Manziel's eligbility to play for it, and CFL commissioner Randy Ambroise later approved Manziel's contract with the league. Dundon told USA Today that the 26-year-old quarterback would get the same offer made to every other AAF player, regardless of position: a three-year deal worth $250,000, plus the chance to leave at any time for the NFL, should that league make an offer. And we think it's best for our league that he does the same.

Johnny Manziel's Canadian football career is over - for now.

Manziel spent much of 2017 negotiating with the CFL's Hamilton Tiger-Cats, who held his rights, and was cleared by the league in late 2017. I can't comment on those conditions.

"It's disappointing that it didn't work the way we had hoped and that we'll wish him well". The current battle for the starting job with the Commanders lies between the former North Carolina Tar Heels standout Marquise Williams and Toledo Rockets former All-MAC signal caller Logan Woodside.
