Johnny Manziel may well be making his way back to professional football.
On Sunday, the Hamilton Tiger-Cats of the Canadian Football League announced that they have offered a contract to Manziel:

Though Manziel and his agent have not agreed to any terms just yet, this is a significant step toward Manziel getting back onto the gridiron as he attempts to, eventually, make his way back to the NFL.
Manziel has not played in an organized game since the 2015 season with the Cleveland Browns. He was released in March 2016, and has several high-profile public incidents in the time since.
Earlier this weekend, Manziel took to Instagram to mock his former employer for going 0-16 in 2017.
