Gives Deadline to CFL Team
… Pay Me Or Else!
1/8/2018 3:28 PM PST
Johnny Manziel‘s agent says the QB is actively negotiating a contract to play with the CFL’s Hamilton Tiger-Cats — and he’s giving them a Jan. 31 deadline … or he’s moving on.
“Johnny wants to let Hamilton fans know where things stand and that he has been working hard in preparation for his comeback,” Johnny’s agent Erik Burkhardt said in a statement.
Burkhardt says Johnny is hopeful they can work out a “fair deal” with the Canadian Football League team — and by that he means a contract “on par with what Hamilton has paid their QB in recent years, despite not having much on-field success.”
Johnny likes the execs in the Hamilton front office — and seems excited to play for coach June Jones … but Burkhardt says the clock is ticking.
“If we cannot reach a deal with Hamilton by this date [Jan. 31], we will turn our focus to several other professional options readily available to us.”
Stay tuned …
