Johnny Manziel apparently needed to lose two agents and his career before deciding enough is enough.
It appears someone got in the quarterbacks ear — instructing him to say something in defense of his offseason of partying.
Manziel told USA Today Sports that he’s focusing on preparing to be in the leagues this season, while hinting at a possible stint in rehab?
“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 USA TODAY Sports. “I also continue to be thankful to those who really know me and support me.”
“So many people only have one image of Jonathan but, believe it or not, he takes all this very seriously,” said Denise Michaels, Manziel’s spokesperson. “He’s hoping that he can clear up his personal issues, start interviewing agents and see what he needs to do if he wants to play this year.”
Agent Drew Rosenhaus — who loves the limelight and press — followed through on his promise to quit if Manziel did not seek treatment within a five-day window.
