Read more:The Montreal Alouettes released quarterback Johnny Manziel on Wednesday, saying he "contravened the agreement which made him eligible to play" in the Canadian Football League.
The CFL said Manziel is not eligible to sign with another team in the league, which had his full rights for two seasons.
"We advised Montreal that Johnny had violated one of the conditions we had set for him to be in our league. And Montreal announced his release today,'' CFL commissioner Randy Ambrosie said in Vancouver. We didn't release the terms of those conditions then and we're not going to do that now.
