Johnny Manziel of Hamilton Tiger-Cats traded to Montreal Alouettes

After being traded to CFL's Montreal Alouettes Johnny Manziel might actually play this time

Sherman has expressed his excitement with reuniting with Manziel, who will likely get his chance to play in Montreal.

Williams, 30, returns for a second stint with Hamilton, The five-foot-eight, 165-pound speedster began his CFL career with the Ticats (2010-12) and was the league's top rookie before being named its top special-teams performer two years later.

In a blockbuster trade announced Sunday night, the Als acquired the 25-year-old quarterback from the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in what was expected to be a multi-player deal.

Manziel, 25, never saw the field for Hamilton, which has been led by quarterback Jeremiah Masoli.

But the company struggled to increase automation and production capacity at the same time after launching the Model 3 . Analysts noted that the announcement did not estimate the cost of the plant, or how it would be financed.

"We have acquired an exceptional quarterback with undeniable talent", Montreal GM Kavis Reed said in a statement. He was selected in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft with the 22nd overall pick. Although, Manziel didn't end up playing for Sherman, as the coach was replaced after Manziel's redshirt freshman season. They're hoping Manziel can be the spark that revives Montreal's season. 'With his great mobility, his athletic abilities and his instinct we believe that he will have a positive impact on our offence'. Johnny is someone we believe can elevate one of the most important positions on our team.

In a February interview with Good Morning America, Manziel revealed that he was self-medicating with alcohol and other substances back in 2016 when he got the boot from the Cleveland Browns after two seasons.

The Johnny Manziel era of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats is reportedly over. Manziel's agent, Erik Burkhardt, tweeted Sunday night.

Montreal, meanwhile, has scored just 69 total points during its 1-4 start and has nothing to lose by signing Manziel to shake things up a bit. Montreal takes on the Edmonton Eskimos (3-2) on Thursday night.
