  • Report: Johnny Manziel traded to Montreal Alouettes

Johnny Manziel has been traded to the Montreal Alouettes from the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, a source confirmed to ESPN's Kevin Seifert.

The 25-year-old, a former Heisman Trophy victor and first-round (22nd overall) draft choice of the Cleveland Browns in 2014, signed a two-year contract with the Ticats in May but has yet to play this season, while backing up veteran Jeremiah Masoli. The Alouettes have scored a CFL-low 69 points and allowed a league-high 148.

The 25-year-old played only two seasons with the Cleveland Browns before taking time to deal with personal issues he was facing off the field. Montreal has thrown out three different starting quarterbacks this season and boasts the worst offense in the CFL.

"We have acquired an exceptional quarterback with undeniable talent", said general manager Kavis Reed in a statement.

He was selected in the first round of the 2014 NFL Draft with the 22nd overall pick and won the Heisman Trophy in 2012. "With his great mobility, his athletic abilities and his instinct we believe that he will have a positive impact on our offence".

Backup Jeff Mathews, who replaced Willy earlier this season, is also out four-to-six weeks with foot injury.

Naylor notes that others around the CFL are skeptical that Hamilton would move Manziel, but the situation bears watching.

He had actively pursued an NFL contract this offseason and played in the developmental Spring League before the CFL deal.

After Sunday's trade, the Tiger-Cats offered any fan with a Manziel Hamilton jersey a complimentary $100 gift card to use in the team store if he/she wanted to return it. Montreal takes on the Edmonton Eskimos (3-2) on Thursday night.
