Johnny Manziel was reportedly banned from the Canadian Football League (CFL) for missing meetings.

According 3DownNation.com, Manziel was booted out of the league and cut from the Montreal Alouettes after he missed mandatory meetings required by the league. When he joined the CFL in the summer of 2018, the Texas A&M Heisman winner was required to attended mandatory doctor appointments and therapy, according to USA Today(RELATED: Johnny Manziel Reacts To Getting Kicked Out Of The CFL, Says He ‘Reestablished’ His Love For Football)

Manziel missing the meetings and getting tossed from the league was described as “an out clause if he wanted it” by 3DownNation.com.

If this report is accurate, then Manziel has nothing to worry about when it comes to getting in the AAF or XFL. When the CFL didn’t really say anything about why the legendary college quarterback got kicked out, people obviously ran with all different kinds of theories.

Missing meetings in an attempt to get out of his contract will mean nothing in the long run. People were worried about substance abuse issues, and that doesn’t sound like it’s the case at all.

Again, if this report is accurate, then he’s going to likely be in the AAF very soon if he wants to be. Imagine what getting Manziel on the sideline could do for the new league.

It would immediately take it to the next level. Buckle up because things might get moving very fast.
