CFL boots Johnny Manziel from the league
Johnny Manziel has worn out his welcome in the Canadian Football League (CFL).
On Wednesday, the Montreal Alouettes released the former Texas A&M quarterback, based on the direction of the CFL. According to the league, Manziel “contravened the agreement which made him eligible to play.”
It is currently unknown what Manziel did to violate his agreement with the CFL.
“We are disappointed by this turn of events. Johnny was provided a great deal of support by our organization, in collaboration with the CFL, but he has been unable to abide by the terms of his agreement,” Alouettes general manager Kavis Reed said in a statement, according to ESPN. “We worked with the league and presented alternatives to Johnny, who was unwilling to proceed.”
Manziel played with the Alouettes last season, throwing for 1,290 yards, five touchdowns and seven interceptions in eight games.
Manziel last played in the NFL with the Cleveland Browns in 2015.
