Johnny Manziel Is Forcing The Hamilton Tiger-Cats To Sign, Trade, Or Release Him

Johnny Manziel is on the Hamilton Tiger-Cats negotiation list.  Which means in Canadian Football that he can't sign with another team while on that list.

Manziel's only option is to activate a 10 day window that forces the Tiger-Cats to sign, trade, or release his rights, via TSN:

Manziel is on the Ticats' negotiation list and the team recently put the former NFL quarterback and college star through a workout in Buffalo.

They could choose to offer him the minimum, but they were believed to be well above that when they had discussions around the time of the workout, reports TSN's Farhan Lalji.

Naylor notes that in addition to money, the term on a possible Manziel contract offer could be an issue. Hamilton may want to go beyond the two-year minimum.

It should be interesting to see if they don't end up signing him if another CFL team has interest in signing him.
