Johnny Manziel will be dumped by a second agent this offseason if he doesn’t receive treatment.
High-profile agent Drew Rosenhaus told ESPN’s Adam Schefter on Wednesday that he was terminating his relationship with the former Cleveland Browns quarterback unless he underwent treatment.
“I have terminated the standard representation with Johnny Manziel in the hopes of helping him get the treatment I believe he needs,” Rosenhaus told Schefter. “I have informed him that if he takes the immediate steps I have outlined for him that I will rescind the termination and continue to represent him. Otherwise the termination will become permanent. There is a five-day window for me to rescind the termination. I’m hoping he takes the necessary steps to get his life back on track.”
Furthermore, ESPN’s Ed Werder reported that Rosenhaus agreed to represent Manziel if he received help at a treatment facility, which he hasn’t done.
If Rosenhaus follows through on this ultimatum, he will join Erik Burkhardt as Manziel’s second agent to drop him this year.
Manziel has a long list of off-field problems since he was drafted in 2014 by the Browns. The quarterback allegedly assaulted his former girlfriend earlier this year, he reportedly was a passenger in a hit-and-run accident this past weekend and he spent time in rehab after his rookie season. That also doesn’t include the multiple social media posts showing him partying.
