Johnny Manziel has set a Jan. 31 deadline for the Tiger-Cats to come up with a "fair deal" to make him their quarterback.

A day after the CFL club confirmed it offered a contract to the former NFL quarterback, his agent, Erik Burkhardt, said in a statement that the team had until the end of the month to come to terms.

In the statement, Burkhardt said the former Heisman Trophy winner should be paid on par with what the Tiger-Cats have paid their previous quarterbacks.

Zach Collaros, who was the Ticats' No. 1 quarterback before being traded to Saskatchewan on Jan. 3, made a reported $520,000 this past season.

Tiger-Cats trade Collaros to Roughriders

  Tiger-Cats trade Collaros to Roughriders The Hamilton Tiger-Cats have traded quarterback Zach Collaros to the Saskatchewan Roughriders for a second-round pick in the upcoming CFL Draft. The 29-year-old has spent the past four seasons in Hamilton and guided the team to three straight postseason appearances, including a trip to the Grey Cup in 2014. Collaros emerged as a reliable and steady contributor for Hamilton, though injuries have slowed him down and seen him miss 24 games since his breakout in 2015.With Brandon Bridge slated to hit the open market, Collaros gives the Roughriders depth at quarterback as he's expected to compete with veteran Kevin Glenn for the starter's job.

Two days after the Tiger-Cats confirmed they had offered Johnny Manziel a contract, his agent released a lengthy statement about the status of the negotiations and putting forth a deadline of January 31 st for the two sides to reach a deal .

Burkhardt stated that if the Tiger-Cats are unable to reach a deal with Manziel by their deadline, then they will pursue other options that are "readily available," without specifying what they are. Hamilton retains the 25-year-old's negotiation rights.

Manziel hasn't played professional football since being released by the Cleveland Browns following the 2015 season. He was highly touted when drafted 22nd overall by the Browns in 2014, but a series of off-field incidents involving alcohol and accusations of assault.

3 teams that could become legit Cup threats with the right deadline deal .
As NHL teams continue to jockey for playoff positioning, front offices around the league will do some maneuvering of their own in an attempt to construct Cup-winning rosters. This year's NHL trade deadline falls on Monday, Feb. 26, giving general managers exactly 40 days to try to swing a deal to put their clubs over the top. Certain teams are much more than just a piece or two away from competing for that coveted silver piece of hardware, but some clubs are tantalizingly close to being a championship-caliber squad, and one player in the right position could be the difference between early trips to the golf course and springtime hockey.
