Agent Drew Rosenhaus has officially terminated his representation of Johnny Manziel. It marks the second time in two months that an agent has severed ties with the former Cleveland Browns quarterback. Rosenhaus announced last Wednesdaythat he had informed Manziel of his decision to terminate their relationship, but that he would reverse the decision if Manziel entered a treatment facility within five days. Rosenhaus said last week that he had decided to cut ties with Manziel "in the hopes of helping him get the treatment I believe he needs." "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," Rosenhaus said last Wednesday. "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." Rosenhaus has never fired a player in his 27 years as an NFL agent. Manziel's previous agent, Erik Burkhardt, announced in February that he had ended his representation of the former Heisman Trophy winner, saying "accountability is the foundation of any relationship, and without it, the function of my work is counterproductive." The Browns selected Manziel 22nd overall in the 2014 draft; he was their second of two first-round picks that year. But his two seasons in Cleveland were marred by off-the-field struggles and limited on-the-field success, and he was waived on March 11. Manziel spent 10 weeks in rehab after his rookie season and is the subject of a grand jury investigation in Dallas into whether he assaulted his former girlfriend. The NFL is investigating whether Manziel violated its personal conduct policy in that incident. Dallas prosecutors will present the Manziel case to a grand jury on Thursday, and an indictment could be announced as early as next Monday.
Punk needs to shut up and get to work. Sick and tired of hearing all the news about Johnny Manziel.
Yeah...he said he's chillin with Von Miller and look what he's up to. Getting drunk and partying everyday.
I know right @DucktheFodgers
He's just too f-ed up. Must be great news for him since he's the first player to ever be fired by Rosenhaus.
I thought this was old news
