CFL Won't Register Johnny Manziel Until 2018 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Wed Sep 27, 2017 3:26 pm

The Canadian Football League will not register the contract of Johnny Manziel  with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats until 2018.

“After an extensive process of due diligence and an in-person meeting with Mr. Manziel, the Commissioner has decided that he will not register any contract for Mr. Manziel for this season. However, Mr. Manziel will be eligible to sign a contract for the 2018 season and, if Mr. Manziel meets certain conditions that have been spelled out by the Commissioner, the CFL will register that contract.  The specifics of those conditions are confidential and will not be disclosed. The CFL has extended the stay on the expiry of the 10-day window for Mr. Manziel until Nov. 30, 2017 and therefore Mr. Manziel will remain on Hamilton’s negotiation list until that date.”

Manziel last played competitive football in 2015.

I want him in Ottawa :P But seriously, his arrival will spice up the league a little bit, which could only be positive!
