Johnny Manziel has not played in the NFL since Dec. 27, 2015, and while the chances seem slim he will get another opportunity, he has now taken a step in the right direction.
He tweeted today that he had decided to sign with the CFL:
Then later confirmed it will be the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.
If nothing else, this was a very calculated decision by Manziel. It shows he just wants to play football and is willing to play at a much lower level.
Playing in Canada will allow Manziel to work on his game, and prove that he is able to handle the pressure of being a professional football player once again.
This is a route that other former NFL QBs should take if the NFL is no longer a fit as opposed to not playing at all.
It will be exciting to see Johnny Football back on the field sometime soon.
