Montreal Alouettes trade for controversial quarterback Johnny Manziel

After Sunday's trade, the Tiger-Cats offered any fan with a Manziel Hamilton jersey a complimentary $100 gift card to use in the team store if he/she wanted to return it.

Manziel's time in Hamilton, Ontario came to an end Sunday when the former National Football League first-rounder was traded to the Montreal Alouettes, according to Duane Forde of TSN.

Hamilton offensive linemen Tony Washington and Landon Rice are also part of the trade. The deal is expected to involve five players and two picks.

Manziel didn't come cheap for the Alouettes.

The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have traded the former Heisman Trophy victor to the Montreal Alouettes in a deal that involves five players and two picks, TSN's Duane Forde reports. The Alouettes are 1-4, having scored just 69 points and given up 148.

Manziel had watched the Tiger-Cats go 2-3 without seeing the field, buried behind starter Jeremiah Masoli.

Als starting QB Drew Willy suffered his second injury of the season in Saturday's 25-8 loss against the Calgary Stampeders, leaving head coach Mike Sherman to run with third-stringer Matt Shiltz for three quarters of the game.

Manziel appeared in two preseason games for Hamilton, completing 21 of 31 passes for one touchdown and one interception. He won the Heisman Trophy in 2012 and was a product out of Texas A&M.
