The Canadian Football League officially cut ties with former Heisman-winning Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel on Wednesday.

First, the Montreal Alouettes released their starting quarterback, then the CFL prohibited any of the league’s other teams from signing him.

While the reason for such a strong punishment remains unknown at this time, Manziel took to Twitter to thank the CFL for the opportunity to get back on the gridiron:

Depending on what caused the CFL to suspend him, it would seem that the new Alliance of American Football league could be a good fit for Johnny Football.

We’ll see what happens next for Manziel, but this seems to be another setback in his attempt to return to the NFL.
