Drew Rosenhaus hasn’t been Johnny Manziel’s agent for a month, but the notorious NFL super- agent has already demanded his client clean up or lose his services.
According to ESPN’s Adam Schefter, Rosenhaus has severed his relationship with Manziel and has given the troubled quarterback five days to seek treatment.
“I have terminated the standard representation with Johnny Manziel in the hopes of helping him get the treatment I believe he needs,” Rosenhaus said, according 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.”
Rosenhaus’ announcement followed Wednesday’s TMZ report that the former Texas A&M star and Heisman Trophy winner was the passenger in a car that hit a lightpole and then fled the scene on foot, only to be was picked up by former Cleveland Browns teammate Josh Gordon last weekend in Hollywood.
TMZ reported Los Angeles police questioned Manziel about the incident, but Manziel has not been charged with any wrongdoing.
It’s the latest in what has been an ongoing saga for Manziel, who’s future in the NFL is in jeopardy. He was dropped by his former agent in February after an alleged domestic assault involving his girlfriend, and he was was officially cut by the Browns in March.
