Johnny Manziel’s tailspin continues. His transgressions with the Browns have been well documented as him being released by the team doesn’t seem like a forgone conclusion. But, then again, you could make an argument that’s what his intention is.
Based on his sullied image thus far in his career, he has turned off some of his representation. Since his rookie year, Manziel partnered with LeBron James’ marketing agency for off the field endeavors. It seemed like a no-brainer at the time. But now it’s a no-brainer for them to drop Manziel.
LeBron James’ LRMR marketing agency has severed ties and will no longer represent Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel, according to Joe Vardon of Cleveland.com.
“We’ve decided to end our formal business relationship with Johnny,” LeBron James’ business manager Maverick Carter told Cleveland.com.
“I will continue to support and advise him as a friend,” Carter added. “However, because Johnny needs to focus on personal growth, the next phase of his career and because LRMR continues to expand beyond marketing, we made the mutual decision that it was best to terminate our business relationship.”
