The Montreal Alouettes pulled off a trade that has brought Johnny Manziel to La Belle Province.
The Als, who have already used three quarterbacks this season, are expected to give Manziel a chance to play and it might even happen as early as Thursday at home versus the Edmonton Eskimos.
The Alouettes have started off the 2018 campaign at a league worst 1-4.
As the 25-year-old controversial former Heisman Trophy winner makes his way to Montreal, fans took to Twitter to voice their reactions.
The trade has certainly created a buzz in the city and the fan reactions are pretty funny, with some jabs even delivered at the expense of the Montreal Canadiens.
Johnny Manziel is on his way to Montreal. Trees in Cote St-Luc haven’t been this nervous since the acquisition of Zack Kassian.

Last thought…there were some prior concerns about his dedication to the game and if he’s grown up. What do we do? Trade him to a city like Montreal where the night life is hardly a distraction. 🤦🏽♂️🤦🏽♂️🤦🏽♂️🤦🏽♂️

During his stint in Hamilton, it appeared Johnny Manziel had matured.
But you put a party animal like Manziel in a party town like Montreal and …
Match, meet kerosene.
