I don’t know what to make of this. A report from Justin Dunk of 3DownNation.com came out today that the Saskatchewan Roughriders gave disgraced ex-NFL Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel a workout last month.
The problem is Manziel is on the neg. list of the Hamilton Tiger-Cats! So this workout would’ve been illegal, and the Riders would therefore be in trouble again. Just like they were last season, with one violation after another!
For his part, Saskatchewan GM Chris Jones issued a statement denying this even happened, and TMZ Sports reported that Manziel himself is denying he had a workout with any CFL team!
You know, when I said that the Roughriders were turning into the Cleveland Browns of the CFL, I thought I was half-kidding. It’s quite possible I’m not! Anyway, the Saskatchewan Roughriders have become part of this whole Johnny Manziel circus that he’s had going for a while. All the sports outlets that love to report on Manziel’s endless antics are now reporting this story, too. Somehow, given the gong show the Riders have become under Jones’ leadership, it seems fitting.
Honestly, I don’t know who or what to believe on this one — the Riders, or Justin Dunk. Somebody is fibbing, big time, about something.
