The official website of the Canadian Football League is likely getting a large amount of hits due to their coverage of Johnny Football. The league primary portal offered up the latest news on Johnny Manziel’s future in the CFL. Odds to Win 106th Grey Cup: Johnny Manziel update.
CFL.ca published and posed the latest about Johnny Football “Questions surrounding Johnny Manziel’s potential future in the CFL continue, this time after the former Texas A&M quarterback took part in a pro day at his alma mater on Tuesday.”
TSN’s Dave Naylor used social media to alert the CFL following. Naylor tweeted out that Manziel told reporters “if nothing (NFL) pops-up, then I’m going to play in the CFL”.
The CFL.ca staff reported that “whether Manziel actually negotiates a deal with a CFL club remains to be seen but the obvious choice should he sign with a team remains the Hamilton Tiger-Cats who still own his exclusive negotiation rights.”
Last week, Hamilton VP of football operations Kent Austin told the CFL official website “that the club was still keeping tabs on Manziel after the pivot took part in a pro day last week in San Diego. 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.”
“It’s a very short stint for these exhibitions and they’ll be over very, very quickly,” Austin said at a CFL gathering in Winnipeg last Friday. “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.
