Johnny Manziel is still pushing for an NFL comeback, but if he doesn't have anything lined up soon he will make good on his contract with the CFL.
“If something (in the NFL) pops up, it pops up. And if if not, and I don’t the opportunity to go back, I’m going to play in the CFL,” Manziel told reporters at Texas A&M's pro day Tuesday.

Manziel is hoping something comes of the Aggies' pro day — with all 32 NFL teams present — but his rights are currently held by the CFL's Hamilton Tiger-Cats. He has committed to play in the Spring League, a developmental league in Austin, Texas beginning later this month.
Manziel, 25, also threw at the University of San Diego's pro day last week, which marked the first time he has thrown publicly since he was with the Browns in December 2015. He has been a free agent since March 2016 after Cleveland released him.
