Manziel Released and barred from the CFL

According to TSN, the Montreal Alouettes have released Manziel, after the CFL directed them to terminate his contract. The league also will not register him to a contract with any other team.

The team said that Manziel didn’t fulfill the agreement which made him eligible to play in Canada.

“We are disappointed by this turn of events,” Alouettes G.M. Kavis Reed said in a release. “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. We worked with the league and presented alternatives to Johnny, who was unwilling to proceed.”
