CFL extends Tiger-Cats’ window to sign Johnny Manziel
After Johnny Manziel worked out for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats last month, Hamilton’s vice president of football operations Kent Austin said the CFL team would not be signing the former Cleveland Browns quarterback.
But Hamilton never removed Manziel from its negotiation list or traded his rights to another team. The team had 10 days to sign Manziel after the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner from Texas A&M activated the signing clock last week. The CFL extended that signing window on Friday.
“The window was extended to facilitate a process of evaluation for the Cheap Youth NFL Jerseys player,” the CFL said in a statement first reported by TSN. “We’ll have no further comment until and unless that process has been completed. So Ticats need to know Manziel’s status with CFL before they can decide what to do.”
“There are people in the league — including the commissioner — they did not want to see San Diego forsaken. They would rather there be a team in San Diego. If there’s anything viable that they could find to put the league back in to San Diego, I think they will be in that camp strongly.”
Banks thinks there are already some in the league office talking about moving the Chargers back to their home of almost 60 years.
“I think there’s already a level of concern at how far south it’s gone, that there are at least people talking about it,” Banks said. “I don’t think a true tipping point has been reached, it’s too early for that. But I think there’s enough concern that people are saying, ‘What’s the best option perhaps Discount Bike Jerseys among bad options?'”
