Johnny Manziel has been fairly silent on social media for awhile but that all changed last night when Manziel posted a slew of Instagram pics celebrating his “comeback szn”.
During his posting spree Jonny went on to troll his former team with, the Cleveland Browns, who have gone 1-31 since they decided to move on from Manziel, with this “0-16 szn” Instagram pic.
(Update Johnny appears to have removed the 0-16 caption from the pic but here’s the screenshot)
Last week, we learned that Manziel was closer to signing a deal with CFL as long “as he met with a series of conditions” from the league.
Since last summer, the Canadian Football League has been engaged in a thorough process to determine the eligibility of Johnny Manziel. This process has been conducted with the cooperation of Mr. Manziel and independent of the team which currently holds his CFL rights, the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. It has included an ongoing assessment by an independent expert on the issue of violence against women, a review by legal counsel, and an in-person interview of Mr. Manziel conducted by the Commissioner. As well, Mr. Manziel has been required to meet a number of conditions set by the league. As a result of this process, the Commissioner has now informed Mr. Manziel and the Tiger-Cats he is prepared to approve a contract for Mr. Manziel should one be negotiated. The process that led to this decision does, however, continue. Mr. Manziel has been informed he must continue to meet a number of conditions in order to remain eligible. These conditions, while extensive and exacting, remain confidential.”
Now it’s being revealed that Manziel has a contract offer with Tiger-Cats.
hat left only the little detail of Manziel and the team agreeing on a contract. The Tiger-Cats announced on Sunday that the ball is now rolling on that front.
“As per the negotiation list process, Johnny Manziel and his agent recently notified the Tiger-Cats that they had activated the 10-day window during which the Tiger-Cats must offer him a contract or lose his negotiation list rights. That window closed today and we can confirm that we made an offer to Manziel, and that his rights will remain on our negotiation list while discussions with he and his agent continue. We will have no further comment.”
