In today’s CFL online betting update brought to you by the Sports Interaction Sportsbook, we have news of former Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel apparently hasn’t given up on his dream of playing professional football. ESPN reported that the 2012 Heisman Trophy winner worked out for the Hamilton Tiger-Cats, the Canadian Football League team that owns his rights, last week.

According to the report, the Tiger Cats put Manziel through a series of workouts over two days in Buffalo, New York.

Despite the interest, the team decided there were too many red flags to sign Manziel at the moment. The team does intent to retain his rights in the event that they change their mind in the future.

The 24-year-old Manziel hasn’t played professional football since the Cleveland Browns released him at the end of the 2015 season. In January, he told ESPN he was sober and ready to get back on a football field.

In the text he sent to ESPN, Manziel said his goal was to “PLAY FOOTBALL. A preseason game, anything I don’t care what it is. Only need one team to believe in me and I’ll do anything to make that a possibility.”

After he was released by the Browns, Manziel was suspended for the first four games of the 2016 season after violating the league’s substance abuse policy. He was also facing discipline for domestic violence charges, so even if an NFL team was interested in giving him a chance, the suspension is something they have to consider.

The Tiger-Cats, who are currently 0-8 in the CFL, recently hired former University of Hawaii coach June Jones to lead the team. The team is also currently trying to negotiate a deal with former Washington Redskins quarterback Robert Griffin III and former San Francisco 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick.

The Tiger-Cats hired Griffin’s former coach at Baylor, Art Briles, as offensive coordinator this week, but had to terminate the deal after outcry about the way Briles handled sexual assaults committed by his players while he was at Baylor.
