In a blockbuster trade announced Sunday night, the Als acquired the 25-year-old quarterback from the Hamilton Tiger-Cats in what was expected to be a multi-player deal. Masoli tied a CFL record with nine straight 300-yard passing games before the team's Week 5 bye.
Alouettes head coach Mike Sherman is very familiar with Manziel and knows how to use him, having coached him at Texas A&M.
Manziel, 25, played only two seasons with the Browns before taking time to deal with personal issues he was facing off the field. The former Heisman Trophy victor appeared in both of the Ticats' exhibition games - completing 21-of-31 passes for 168 yards and a TD while rushing six times for 19 yards - but didn't see any regular-season action backing up incumbent Jeremiah Masoli.

The move is aimed at plugging leaks from work e-mails and shared documents as well as guarding against possible cyber-attacks. A cyber-attack crippled the UK's National Health Service (NHS) and other organisations around the world in May past year .
Sherman has expressed his excitement with reuniting with Manziel, who will likely get his chance to play in Montreal. Montreal sent Hamilton two first-round picks, a defensive lineman and a receiver for Manziel and two offensive linemen.
'We have acquired an exceptional quarterback with undeniable talent, ' Alouettes general manager Kavis Reed said in a statement.
He will battle for the quarterback job with Drew Willy, Jeff Mathews and Matt Shiltz, all of whom have been tested by Montreal, which has the worst offense in the CFL.

Westerman, 33, had 19 tackles and three sacks in five games with the Alouettes, who he joined as a free agent this off-season.
Westerman also played in 58 career National Football League games with the New York Jets (2009-11), Arizona Cardinals (2012), Indianapolis Colts (2012), Buffalo Bills (2013) and Pittsburgh Steelers (2013). He made a two-year commitment to the CFL in May, but if Manziel can re-establish himself as a capable quarterback, he might find his way back to the National Football League in 2020.
