The five day deadline that superstar agent Drew Rosenhaus placed on former Cleveland Browns QB Johnny Manziel is officially up, leaving Manziel without an agent or a team going into the 2016 season.
While more bad news for Manziel still currently plague the news media, the former Heisman Trophy winner from Texas A&M knows he’s on a lot of team’s no-contact list and wants to come into 2016 more focused (yes, we know we’ve heard that line before).
Johnny Manziel said he is prepared to do what is necessary as he eyes a potential return to the NFL this season, even after a whirlwind week that culminated in the embattled quarterback being dropped by his second agent in two months.
“I’m hoping to take care of the issues in front of me right now, so I can focus on what I have to do if I want to play in 2016,” Manziel said in a statement provided to ESPN.com and other media. “I also continue to be thankful to those who really know me and support me.”
The statement comes on the heels of agent Drew Rosenhaus’ officially terminating his representation of Manziel, a league source told ESPN NFL Insider Adam Schefter.
