The Hamilton Tiger-Cats and Montreal Alouettes have been discussing a potential deal involving quarterback Johnny Manziel.
The teams have talked about multiple players who could be included in a possible trade with a couple of big names on both sides.
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.
