Everything has gone horribly wrong for Jonathan Paul Manziel. And in such a short period of time.
Johnny Football is a Heisman Trophy winner, a former first-round draft pick, a prized recruit that the Cleveland Browns made a trade for to ensure they got the former Texas A&M standout quarterback. He was supposed to be their franchise QB, who would finally lead the troubled side towards the playoffs after so many years of disappointment.
Instead, Manziel became the disappointment, deciding he'd rather go out partying and drinking instead of learning the Browns' playbook and managed to lose the starting quarterback spot to Brian Hoyer before landing in rehab last year and being sacked by the Browns this offseason. And now, Manziel is in danger of losing his agent.

Yes, Manziel could be set to lose his second agent in two months if Drew Rosenhaus goes through with his threat.
Rosenhaus took Manziel on as a client in March, and is now giving the former Heisman Trophy winner a week to seek treatment or dissolve their business relationship.
"I have terminated the standard representation with Johnny Manziel in the hopes of helping him get the treatment I believe he needs," Rosenhaus said Wednesday in a statement to Adam Schefter of ESPN.
"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."
Manziel is on his second agent of the offseason after being dropped by Erik Burkhardt following a criminal investigation into a domestic violence incident between Manziel and his girlfriend.
Johnny Football really needs to turn his life around before it spirals out of control. If he is recent fender bender is true, then he's already part way to never being allowed on another National Football League team again.
It's a real shame, but Manziel has brought this all upon himself with his immature actions and mindset on being a professional football player.
