It's been two years since Johnny Manziel was drafted by the Cleveland Browns, but it still feels like everyone is waiting for his career to really start.
After a rookie year that saw him spend more time partying than learning the playbook and ended with the former Heisman winner spending time in rehab, Manziel is still yet to mature and grow up.
Manziel's bad reputation has now seen him be dropped by LeBron James' marketing agency.

According to a report from Cleveland.com, LRMR Management Company formally cut ties with Manziel on Wednesday. "We've decided to end our formal business relationship with Johnny," LRMR CEO and co-founder Maverick Carter said.
This comes after Manziel's latest indiscretion, when he apparently took a whirlwind trip to Las Vegas for New Year's, before the Browns season had finished. Whilst Manziel was in the concussion protocol and not expected to play, it didn't give him a clear pass to fly 2000 miles to the party capital of America.
Manziel was treated for alcohol/substance abuse during his time in rehab, but apparently it was a worthwhile task, with the quarterback pictured out partying several times.
LeBron had supported Manziel publicly, but that support has now turned to concern, with James saying he was worried about Manziel on a personal level.
"He'll figure it out at some point, we all hope," LeBron reportedly said.
Manziel better wisen up and fast. His NFL career is slowly fading out of his grasp as he's not putting in the type of performances that could cause a team to overlook his problems and partying.
In all honestly, it would be a big surprise if Johnny Football wasn't cut by the Browns this offseason. That's how bad things have gotten for the former prodigy. And it's all his own making.
