Drew Rosenhaus Set To Terminate Contract With Johnny Manziel If He Doesn’t Seek Help
Less than a month after Manziel hired Drew Rosenhaus to be his new agent, reports are Rosenhaus has had enough and is threatening to terminate the contract if the former Cleveland Browns QB doesn’t seek help.
Johnny Manziel’s 2nd agent this off-season, Drew Rosenhaus, informed Manziel either he gets treatment or he no longer will represent him.

Manziel’s original agent Erik Burkhardt cut ties with the troubled QB in January, and since then Manziel has been a regular cast-member on TMZ.
His new fed-up agent Rosenhaus had this to say:
“I have terminated the standard representation with Johnny Manziel in the hopes of helping him get the treatment I believe he needs,” Rosenhaus told 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 has never fired a player in 27 years as an NFL agent. Manziel is looking to break that streak.
