If Johnny Manziel had dreams of making it back to the NFL after squandering away his first opportunity, he just took a big blow to that idea.
On Wednesday, the CFL’s Montreal Alouettes announced they had released him from their roster.
“We are disappointed by this turn of events. Johnny was provided a great deal of support by our organization, in collaboration with the CFL, but he has been unable to abide by the terms of his agreement,” said General Manager Kavis Reed in a statement. “We worked with the league and presented alternatives to Johnny, who was unwilling to proceed.”
“We are confident going into the 2019 training camp with a roster of quarterbacks that had played in our system last year and are committed to our team,” added Reed.
