  • Johnny Manziel to start CFL game Friday

Quarterback Johnny Manziel will face a familiar foe when he starts the Montreal Alouettes' home game against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats on Friday.

With Jeremiah Masoli starting the season strong in Hamilton, Manziel was unable to get into a game and was finally traded to Montreal a week ago.

Manziel was traded to the Montreal Alouettes earlier this season.

The 2012 Heisman Trophy victor played as backup to Hamilton starter Jeremiah Masoli in both of the team's preseason games. "It was a lack of respect and it affected me", he added. I have been away from the game a little bit.

"I know that's not easy because I've been on the other side of it multiple times".

"We didn't trade for Johnny to have him sit on the bench, so obviously, Johnny's come over here to get reps and become the best player he can become", Sherman said, via USA Today. I have nothing more to say or to give to the fans of Montreal.

Vidal trained with his Bayern Munich team-mates on Thursday for the last time before making the move to the Spanish champions. However, injuries last season limited him to just 22 Bundesliga appearances, pushing Bayern to let him go.

"I feel very blessed to be in this position, to be back in a situation where I'm starting again", Manziel told reporters Tuesday (via ESPN). During two brief preseason appearances with Hamilton, Manziel wasn't bad, as he completed 21 of 31 passes for 168 yards and a touchdown, while rushing six times for 19 yards.

Manziel, 25, appeared in 14 games overall, throwing for 1,675 yards and seven TD passes.

Manziel won't have an easy task in leading Montreal as they aren't good this season.

The six-foot, 210-pound Manziel was taken in the first round, No. 22 overall, by the Cleveland Browns in the 2014 National Football League draft but was released in March 2016 after posting a 2-6 record over two tumultuous campaigns on and off the field. I tried anyways to make plays on the field.

"Instinctively a lot of guys would just try to be a runner and get a lot of accolades for being a running quarterback, but sooner or later you're going to have to pull the trigger as a quarterback and we felt that he showed that in the pre-season". That's what I want to do.
