On a couple of overnight Instagram posts, the Heisman Trophy winner Johnny Manziel takes a gratuitous dig at the Cleveland Browns' imperfect season and also claims to be on the comeback trail.

There are developments for the latter, as multiple reports state the former 2014 first-round pick has been offered a contract with the CFL's Hamilton Tiger-Cats. 

As per the negotiation list process, Johnny Manziel and his agent recently notified the Tiger-Cats that they had activated the 10-day window during which the Tiger-Cats must offer him a contract or lose his negotiation list rights. That window closed today and we can confirm that we made an offer to Manziel, and that his rights will remain on our negotiation list while discussions with he and his agent continue.

One of the more underrated keys to Hamilton's recruitment of the oft-troubled Manziel is Tiger-Cats head coach June Jones.

Jones is known as a quarterback whisperer and pioneer of high-powered offensive football. Given Manziel's skill set and the CFL's wide open game, they would seem an ideal match. 

Just wait on it #ComebackSZN
