Johnny Manziel trade to the Alouettes ‘a done deal’: report

TSN’s Duane Forde is reporting that the trade sending Johnny Manziel to the Montreal Alouettes is a “done deal.”

3DownNation’s Justin Dunk reported earlier Sunday that the Hamilton Tiger-Cats and Montreal Alouettes were involved in trade discussions.

Manziel has yet to appear in a regular season game with the Ticats after signing with the club in May, stuck behind starter Jeremiah Masoli, who is currently second in the CFL in passing yards. The Alouettes have used Drew Willy, Jeff Mathews and Matt Shiltz at quarterback so far during the 2018 season, scoring a league-low 69 points.

If Manziel goes to Montreal it would give him the opportunity to be the starter for the Alouettes. Head coach Mike Sherman knows Manziel well as it was Sherman who convinced the Kerrville, Texas native to switch his NCAA commitment from the University of Oregon to Texas A&M University.
