Johnny Manziel’s second agent in 3 months just dropped him

Johnny Manziel dropped by another agent over health

Johnny Manziel has now watched two agents walk away in the last three months.

ESPN’s Adam Schefter reported Wednesday that agent Drew Rosenhaus terminated his representation of Manziel over concerns about his well-being.

Rosenhaus says he would be willing to take Manziel back as a client if he first enters rehab.

“I have terminated the standard representation with Johnny Manziel in the hopes of helping him get the treatment I believe he needs,” Rosenhaus said in a statement to 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,” he continued.

Rosenhaus began representing Manziel after his original agent, Erik Burkhardt, cut ties with Manziel in January. Burkhardt cited similar concerns about the quarterbacks health.

Manziel is known for partying hard, sometimes the night before a game.

Earlier this week, Manziel was interviewed by TMZ outside of a Los Angeles club, where he said he wanted to play football again.

Even if Johnny Manziel enters rehab and re-signs with Rosenhaus, it’s unlikely an NFL team will pick him up for the upcoming season. However, his ability to show that he is seriously seeking help could lead to a new contract for the following season.
