Johnny Manziel’s offseason has been pretty entertaining, to say the least. Now according to Adam Schefter of ESPN reports that Manziel is about to lose his second agent since the season ended. Agent Drew Rosenhaus has informed the free agent quarterback that either he gets treatment or Rosenhaus will no longer represent him. Rosenhaus said:
I have terminated the standard representation with Johnny 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. 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.
Fellow ESPN reporter Ed Werder weighs in on this bizarre situation:
Drew Rosenhaus has never in 27 years as #NFL agent fired a player as client. Johnny Manziel has 5 days to avoid being the first

Manziel and Rosenhaus finalized their agreement back on March 9th, a little over a month after Manziel’s first agent cut ties with him due to the domestic violence investigation. Other prospective NFL employers have followed suit and have parted ways with the former Browns quarterback.
