Johnny Manziel is a mess. It’s completely unclear whether he actually wants to pursue a football career or simply just party, tell absurd lies in public, allegedly assault his girlfriend, and eventually, well, who knows?
After his first agent cut ties with him earlier this year, citing Manziel’s inability and or unwillingness to get help with his very apparent issues, super-agent Drew Rosenhaus took Johnny Football on. Now, with no team wanting to get within miles of the broken former Heisman winner and news circulating today that Manziel was involved in a hit-and-run, even Rosenhaus is reportedly ready to bail. So sayeth ESPN’s Adam Schefter, who provided the news on his Facebook page.
Johnny Manziel’s second agent this off-season, Drew Rosenhaus, has informed the former Browns quarterback that either he gets treatment or he no longer will 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,” Rosenhaus said. “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.”
Good for Rosenhaus. Someone is going to get killed if Manziel doesn’t figure out how to control himself and getting the proper treatment seems like as good a solution to this major problem as any. Time will tell if he finally makes a reasonable decision.
