It s CFL Week and with the 2018 season quickly approaching the SuperBook of Las Vegas has updated their Candian Football League Futures. And what would a CFL update be these days without mentioning Johnny Manziel? Odds to Win 2018 Grey Cup (March 26).
As CFL Week continues this past Friday the official website of the CFL reported on Manziel and outlined the popular topics of the coaches and general managers.
“The Ticats are still keeping a close eye on Johnny Manziel. Ticats negotiation list quarterback and former college phenom Johnny Manziel held a pro day in front of a reported 13 NFL teams this week, as pro football comeback continues for Johnny Football.”
The CFL.ca piece also mentioned that “Manziel has also signed up for a short two-week spring league that begins on April 7, which will allow him to showcase his talents during both the NFL and CFL off-season.”
Asked about the topic, Kent Austin confirmed the Ticats are still keeping a close eye on Manziel, and will be in attendance at his spring league contests.
“It’s a very short stint for these exhibitions and they’ll be over very, very quickly,” said Austin. “You’ll probably see things move pretty quickly after that, in some direction.
“He’s doing well,” Austin added. “He’s worked out, he’s been working out with NFL guys for some time now prior to going down to Texas. It’s all in line.
“From the information that you already have, there’s nothing different from that right now.”
In addition the insight and analysis article stated that “Should Manziel fail to land an NFL job in the coming month, the chances of him joining the Ticats surely increase. At the moment, Manziel would have to sign a two-year contract minimum in order to play in the three-down league.”
