Heisman Trophy-winning NFL castoff Johnny Manziel is expected to make his CFL debut Friday night in the Hamilton Tiger-Cats’ preseason opener, coach June Jones said Monday.
According to CFL.ca, it already was presumed that Manziel would play Friday, but depending on Adams’ status, Manziel may see even more time.
I don’t want to put him in the game and have him not know exactly where everybody’s going to be, and that comes from repetition,Jones said. He’s not all the way caught up where Jeremiah is.
Manziel, 25, signed with the Tiger-Cats after nearly a year of speculation. The former Heisman Trophy winner at Texas A&M was a first-round pick by the NFL’s Browns, with whom he washed out after two roller-coaster seasons in 2014 and ’15.

The Patriots traded two late round draft picks to the Seahawks in exchange for the 25-year-old just before the start of the 2017 season. But Marsh spent only nine games in New England before he was cut in November.
The 49ers claimed Marsh off waivers and he signed a two-year, $7.7 million extension with the team in the offseason. Marsh recorded two sacks and forced two fumbles for San Francisco in 2017.
Marsh told the San Francisco Chronicle this week he was happy when the Al Jefferson Jersey Patriots released him.
They don’t have fun there,Marsh said. There’s nothing fun about it. There’s nothing happy about it. I didn’t enjoy any of my time there, you know what I’m saying? It made me, for the first time in my life, think about not playing football because I hated it that much.
