Johnny Manziel has yet to throw a pass in the Canadian Football League, but the former Heisman Trophy victor still scored a big win on Sunday by being traded from the Hamilton Tiger-Cats to the last-place Montreal Alouettes.

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.

Montreal has a 1-4 record following Saturday night's 25-8 loss at Calgary and has struggled offensively while using three different quarterbacks - Drew Willy, Jeff Mathews and Matt Shiltz. He signed a two-year contract with Hamilton in May. 'With his great mobility, his athletic abilities and his instinct we believe that he will have a positive impact on our offence'. 'Neither one of us believes in the status quo and felt we needed to shake things up.
