Hamilton Tiger-Cats offer Johnny Manziel a contract

The surprise would have been if the Hamilton Tiger-Cats hadn't offered Johnny Manziel a contract.

Right before that picture, Manziel posted an image of him doing his trademark money celebration in a Cleveland Browns uniform, the team that drafted him in the first round of the 2014 National Football League draft.

HAMILTON-The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have made an offer to former National Football League quarterback Johnny Manziel and bought themselves more time to negotiate.

A Heisman Trophy victor in 2012 and a first-round selection by Cleveland in 2014, Manziel was cut by the Browns in March 2016 after two seasons of inconsistent play and off-the-field distractions. "We will have no further comment".

On December 28, the commissioner announced that Manziel had met those conditions and the Ticats could offer him a contract, but had only 10 days to do so or he would be removed from their negotiation list to become a CFL free agent.

Russian soldiers killed in attack on air base in Syria
The region was once a hotbed of protest against President Bashar Assad's government. It said the Russian air group in Syria was "combat-ready".

In the early years of his professional career, Manziel made headlines in OH and in Texas for his partying, drinking and claims of assault.

You see, the Tiger-Cats had a timeframe for maintaining the negotiation rights to Manziel - by offering him a contract on Sunday, they did so within a 10-day window, thereby extending his negotiation list rights for another year.

The Tiger-Cats re-signed quarterback Jeremiah Masoli on Thursday, one day after trading Zach Collaros to the Saskatchewan Roughriders.

Hamilton (6-12) finished third in the East Division past year and missed the playoffs.

Hamilton's coach June Jones said past year that he thinks Manziel could be the best player in CFL history. Manziel resurfaced on Instagram late Saturday night-early Sunday morning, with a certain mark Seifert noticed.
