Johnny Manziel has reportedly been traded

Stop us if you've heard this before: Johnny Manziel is getting a fresh start.

The trade will reunite Manziel with Alouettes head coach Mike Sherman, who recruited Manziel to Texas A&M in 2011 when Sherman was the head coach of the Aggies.

Sherman, who coached the Packers offensive line for two years (1997-98) before returning as head coach in 2000, never actually got the chance to coach Manziel on the field in College Station. The final stats: zero passing yards, zero rushing yards and five games spent firmly on the bench. The Alouettes are now sitting in last place in the CFL's East Division with a 1-4 record, including an offense that ranks last in the league in points scored and rushing yards, is tied for last in turnovers, and is seventh of nine teams in passing yards.

According to TSN, the Als also acquire a pair of offensive linemen, Tony Washington and Landon Rice.

Montreal has already had three different quarterbacks this season, and none has impressed much.

"We have acquired an exceptional quarterback with undeniable talent", Alouettes general manager Kavis Reed said in a statement.

Montreal hosts Edmonton on Thursday night. 'With his great mobility, his athletic abilities and his instinct we believe that he will have a positive impact on our offence'.

The Council has also made a decision to defer implementation of reverse charge mechanism (RCM) by a year to 30 September, 2019. Small handicraft items have also been exempted from GST. "I think the 28 percent tax slab should be done away with".

He read from a statement where he said he supported us intelligence that had found that Russian Federation had interfered. When asked if she was reversing what the president had said, she answered: "I'm interpreting it, not reversing it".

Trump chose before, ultimately putting the issue into the spotlight just 72 hours before the high-stakes meeting, the people said. It came as the fallout grew over what was dubbed Mr Trump's "surrender summit" and "treason summit".

The six-foot-seven, 318-pound Washington, a nine-year veteran, fills a need for Montreal, which recently released starting tackle Fulton Xavier.

Sherman and the Alouettes have the scored the fewest points in the CFL this season.

Not only will Manziel's acquisition potentially provide the Als with their most-talented quarterback, he'll provide an infusion of publicity to a team struggling badly to attract paying customers. He made a two-year commitment to the CFL in May, but if Manziel can re-establish himself as a capable quarterback, he might find his way back to the National Football League in 2020.

He spent time in the National Football League with New Orleans (2013) and Chicago Bears (2013-14) before returning to the CFL with Ottawa (2015-16) and was a member of the Redblacks' 2016 Grey Cup-winning squad.

The Tiger-Cats are 2-3 this season, which puts them in second place in the East Division.

He had 15 catches for 283 yards and a TD in four games with the Alouettes.
