NFL teams are reportedly waiting for quarterback Johnny Manziel’s disciplinary process to conclude before pursuing him, reports NFL Media’s Ian Rapoport.

Manziel, who was released by the Cleveland Browns earlier this month and is now a free agent, is currently being investigated for domestic assault of his former girlfriend. 

He hired Drew Rosenhaus on Saturday to be his new agent. Manziel’s former agent Erik Burkhardt cut ties with him in February.

“I’m not talking much about him publicly,” Rosenhaus told the Fort Worth Star-Telegram. “Much of his life and career is public so from the business side we are trying to keep that behind the scenes. Yes, there are teams interested in him.”
