HAMILTON – Johnny Manziel is headed to the Hammer.
The Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback announced on Twitter early Saturday that he signed with the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.
Selected out of Texas A*M by the NFL’s Cleveland Browns in the first round of the 2014 NFL draft No. 22 overall Manziel threw as many interceptions (seven) as touchdown passes with the Browns during two seasons.
In 2016, a domestic assault charge against Manziel in Dallas was dismissed after Manziel took an anger management course and participated in the NFL’s substance-abuse program.
In a recent interview, Manziel said he’s been diagnosed with bipolar disorder and has stopped drinking alcohol.
