Johnny Manziel Hires Drew Rosenhaus As His Agent, Still Unlikely To Have Much Interest

Update:

Jason La Canfora is now reporting Drew Rosenhaus is now officially representing free agent QB Johnny Manziel as his agent.

Jason La Canfora reports that former Browns QB Johnny Manziel is expected to formally hire Drew Rosenhaus as his agent.

However, La Canfora dds that Manziel will have a tough time generating much interest, even with his new agent.

According to La Canfora, NFL teams have gave no indication having interest in Manziel until he makes “major life changes and makes real strides towards sobriety.

A source described Manziel hiring Rosenhaus “fluid“, but La Canfora has spoken with several sources who indicated that Rosenhaus is well positioned to be his next agent.

Manziel even after all that has transpired in recent years on and off the field, he has shown on indication of making any major changes to his life, so it would be really surprising to see him find interest from a team at any point in the near future.

It’s worth mentioning that signing Manziel to a contract wouldn’t factor into a team’s 2017 compensatory picks.

Manziel, 23, was in the second year of his four-year, $8,247,250 rookie contract that included $6,702,625 guaranteed when the Browns cut him loose at the start of the 2016 league year.

Manziel wound up clearing waivers and is now an unrestricted free agent.

This season, Manziel appeared in nine games and thrown for 1,500 yards while completing 57.8 percent of his passes to go along with seven touchdowns and five interceptions. Manziel has also ran for 230 yards. Pro Football Focus has him rated as the No. 31 quarterback out of 36 qualifying players.
