Johnny Manziel dropped by LeBron James' marketing agency


Reports continue to speculate whether or not Cleveland Browns quarterback Johnny Manziel was in Las Vegas last Saturday night. "I'm more concerned for him individually", James told reporters Wednesday.

LRMR, the marketing agency of future NBA Hall of Famer Lebron James, has ended its relationship with Manziel, according to a report by cleveland.com's Joe Vardon. As the Johnny Manziel saga continues to unfold in Cleveland, the city's most prominent athlete, LeBron James has become the latest professional to voice his concern over Manziel's antics.

Manziel was reportedly seen gambling at a Las Vegas casino in disguise with a blond wig, fake mustache, and glasses over the weekend.

Manziel, 23, played in nine games (six starts) this season and threw 1,500 yards, seven touchdowns and five interceptions and completed 57.8 per cent of his passes.

Manziel missed a mandatory meeting with the team doctor before Sunday's game against the Pittsburgh Steelers.

One of those that is moving on from the embattled Manziel is LeBron James.

Before the 2015 season, the former Heisman Trophy-winner spent time in rehab to address substance abuse issues. "I don't know all the details on it. I have heard a little bit of it. It's a distraction for not only himself, but people around him". That said, before he returns to the football field, we can only hope Manziel focuses on personal growth, like Maverick Carter stated.

Since then, Manziel's hard-partying lifestyle has contributed to several embarrassing off-field incidents and led him to check into a rehabilitation facility specializing in alcohol and drug addiction treatment nearly a year ago.

 

A spokesman for James said the sides mutually agreed to end their relationship, which began shortly after Manziel was drafted into the NFL.
