Manziel is giving Hamilton until Jan. 31 to make him a fair offer, TSN reports.
According to Manziel's agent the 25-year-old is looking for a 500K contract at the moment to take his talents north of the border, which would be similar to the deal Zach Collaros signed which made him the highest paid player in the CFL in 2016, Matthew Scianitti of TSN reports. While not a hefty price in the NFL, seeing Manziel become one of the richest Canadian football players would certainly be surprising especially since he hasn't played professional football since 2015-16. Manziel's agent said if Hamilton isn't able to reach a deal with his camp by the date they'll start looking at other options professionally for the Texas native, but with Hamilton's interest and Manziel's positive relationship with head coach June Jones, it still wouldn't be surprising to see a deal fall in place.
