Too Many Red Flags as CFL Team Passes on Manziel

Johnny Manziel wants to kick start his pro football career, he may  need to do it in Canada. But even in the Canadian Football League, he  might not be able to find a team willing to take on his baggage.

"Too many red flags," a source said.

The Ticats put Manziel through a series of physical and medical tests during their bye week on Aug. 23 and 24, coming away convinced he’s not ready to resume his professional career.

Hamilton's contingent in Buffalo included head coach June Jones, vice-president of football operations Kent Austin, general manager Eric Tillman, assistant general manager Shawn Burke and team president and CEO Scott Mitchell. The group left the session with the understanding that they would not be pursuing Manziel at this time.
