Johnny Manziel was, eh, “let go” from the entire Canadian Football League yesterday, for reasons as yet unknown.

For his part, Johnny appeared to be gracious in departure and hinted heavily about returning to football in the U.S. of A.
I want to thank Coach Sherman, my teammates, and the CFL fans. My time there reestablished my love for the game of football and the work that goes into it. I look forward to exploring new options within the United States.— Johnny Manziel (@JManziel2) February 27, 2019
And this morning, intrepid Brand Guardian Darren Rovell chimed in:
Update: Johnny Manziel has been in touch with the AAF about possibly playing for the league (his rights are with San Antonio). Told AAF not moving on anything, if they do, until they find out why he was cut loose + to make sure he’s free and clear from Alouettes.— Darren Rovell (@darrenrovell) February 28, 2019
If Johnny does end up with the San Antonio Commanders, he’ll join fellow Aggie teammates Shaan Washington, Cam Clear, and Trey Williams. For now, we’ll just have to wait for a bit more drama to unfold over the exact details of his departure from the CFL, even if it’s the more tempered Canadian style of drama.
