Former Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel has hired Drew Rosenhaus as his new agent, reports CBS Sports’s Jason La Canfora.
Manziel’s former agent Erik Burkhardt cut ties with the quarterback in February, saying Manziel needed to “get his life in order.” Manziel was released from the Browns in March and is currently a free agent.
Rosenhaus owns the Miami-based sports agency Rosenhaus Sports, which represents NFL players such as Rob Gronkowski, Antonio Brown, LeSean McCoy and many more. Rosenhaus has previously taken on numerous clients with off-field issues, including Terrell Owens, Josh Gordon and Greg Hardy.
Manziel has been a lightning rod of controversy since his days in college. Two of his more notable incidents since entering the NFL include checking into a rehabilitation facility and being investigated for domestic assault.
In 15 career NFL games, Manziel has completed 57% of his passes with 1,675 yards, seven touchdowns, seven interceptions and seven fumbles.
