On Tuesday, news broke that Johnny Manziel will finally get his first start in the CFL playing for the Montreal Alouettes this Friday against the Hamilton Tiger-Cats.
The same team that traded Manziel to Montreal, which is an interesting twist of fate.
It’s been a long time since Manziel played in a meaningful pro game that wasn’t part of The Spring League. In fact, the last game he played in the NFL was way back in 2015. So this is a pretty big deal, both for Manziel and his fans.
Speaking of his fans, let’s jump right into some of the best reactions we saw on Twitter to this big news.

I know Johnny Manziel has done some bad things, but I'm still rooting for him. I think he's made himself a better person and made the right changes. I don't think I've ever seen a more electric college football player
