So who thinks Manziel is going to get a deal done in Hamilton or elsewhere in the CFL?

Personally I'm pessimistic about his chances. If the guy couldn't get it together when presented with a huge multimillion dollar opportunity to be the hero of the big Browns turnaround story, what makes anyone think he's going to be motivated enough to it as a Hamilton Tiger-Cat for less than 10% of the money?

At this point I think one of two things will happen. Either he'll reject a CFL offer in hopes of getting a huge payday from the XFL or some other American startup league with the end result being that none of them ever actually start up and he never sets foot on a field again, or he'll sign with a CFL team only to follow the timeless NFL star-turned-NFL reject template of getting cut in training camp.

Of all the things Manziel is, hungry doesn't really appear to be one of them.
