CFL Bombers' Chris Randle says "[Johnny Manziel] is good competition for our league and good publicity for our game"
According to the Winnipeg Sun, the Winnipeg Blue Bombers cornerback Chris Randle is excited about the prospect of playing with Johnny Manziel. He also seemed to relish the idea of challenging Johnny in the CFL this year. "I would love to be on ESPN playing against him," Randle said. He added, "Me, knowing the knowledge I know, I would love to put that up against Johnny Manziel and the talent that he has right now. I will take my experience vs. his playmaking ability and what I think he'll be able to bring and what our team can do."
We wholeheartedly agree with Randle's assessment that Johnny's presence will be great for the league, and are not surprised CFL players are excited about the prospect of increased attention that will come from Manziel. Ultimately, it may drive revenues to the league, which could in turn lead to higher salaries for CFL players. Furthermore, on the rare occasion, it could give CFL players the spotlight to shine and get a shot at the NFL. #comebackSZN
