Manziel says he wants ‘fair deal’ will sell jerseys and tickets

M

Quarterback Johnny Manziel says he and his representatives have asked the Hamilton Tiger-Cats for a “fair deal” and that he’ll sell more jerseys and tickets than the value of his contract.

Manziel used Twitter on Wednesday to refute a TSN report that there is a significant gap between his contract demands and what the Ticats, who own his negotiation list rights, are offering.

TSN responded looking for a clarification and Manziel got back to them on Thursday, though some of them have since been deleted.

A Hamilton fan got involved in the conversation and Manziel responded to him as well.

Manziel, whose agent hinted that he was looking for a contract similar to what former starter Zach Collaros earned last season – in excess of $500,000 – says he’s looking for a “fair deal” (whatever that means.)

The fan made reference to what rookies in the CFL earn – TSN reported the Ticats have offered $150,000 per season, plus incentives – but Manziel says he has the ability to generate additional revenue for the club.

Manziel does not appear to be winning this particular fan over…

The fan got in the last word, and it was a good one.

Then former Eskimos and current Riders Canadian running back Aaron Milton responded to Manziel.

Milton clarified he did not call Manziel a bum.
