Johnny Manziel's agent, Drew Rosenhaus, has temporarily dropped the quarterback as a client if he does not get treatment in the offseason, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter.

“I have terminated the standard representation with Johnny Manziel in the hopes of helping him get the treatment I believe he needs,” Rosenhaus said. “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 is Manziel's second agent since agent Erik Burkhardt severed ties with him in February. 

“His family and I have gone to great lengths to outline the steps we feel he must take to get his life in order,” Burkhardt said at the time. “Accountability is the foundation of any relationship, and without it, the function of my work is counterproductive.”

In January, LeBron James' MRMR marketing firm dropped Manziel as a client. The move came just days after Manziel was accused of striking his ex-girlfriend during an altercation in Dallas. He could face potential NFL discipline.

Manziel remains an NFL free agent and is based in Los Angeles at the moment.
