Manziel is accused of hitting ex-girlfriend Colleen Crowley and forcing her against her will into a vehicle. Manziel is expected to plead not guilty, and his lawyer is confident he "will be acquitted at the conclusion of the case." Manziel will have to wait until this situation is resolved to find a new team, and it remains possible his NFL career is over. Apr 26 - 11:49 AM

Free agent Johnny Manziel has been indicted by a Dallas county grand jury on a misdemeanor assault charge.

He's accused of hitting ex-girlfriend Colleen Crowley "several times" while driving a vehicle. Sources told CBS Dallas that Crowley and Manziel reached a civil settlement, but the legal process must now run its course. Crowley also got a restraining order that prohibits Manziel from seeing her until at least 2018. Manziel may not end up in jail for the charge, but he could face NFL discipline, further reducing Manziel's chances of returning to the league anytime soon.

Free agent QB Johnny Manziel said he hopes to play in the NFL this year.

"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," said Manziel in a statement to USA Today. "I also continue to be thankful to those who really know me and support me." Manziel's spokesperson Denise Michaels added that he'll begin interviewing agents once he can "clear up his personal issues." Manziel seems to have finally acknowledged that he has a problem. Hopefully Manziel will get the help he needs, but it could be too late to salvage his career. No team is going to bend over backwards for an undersized backup who has consistently prioritized partying over football.

Free agent QB Johnny Manziel's domestic violence case will be heard by a grand jury on Thursday.

A decision on charges is expected by Monday. Manziel is accused of hitting ex-girlfriend Colleen Crowley so hard she temporarily lost hearing during an altercation in January. The Browns made the decision to release Manziel shortly after the incident, and the quarterback has done nothing to suggest he plans on getting his life together in the intervening months. Agent Drew Rosenhaus recently terminated his relationship with Manziel because the two are "not on the same page" regarding rehab. Manziel is reportedly spending the week hanging out with suspended WR Josh Gordon at Coachella.

Agent Drew Rosenhaus said he and client Johnny Manziel are "not on the same page" regarding rehab.

Rosenhaus gave Manziel an ultimatum two days ago, saying Manziel needed to check into rehab and start getting his life in order within five days or he was leaving the quarterback. "Unfortunately there hasn’t been any movement toward getting help or seeking treatment that I’m aware of," Rosenhaus said. "I’m trying diligently to recommend this to Johnny. He’s got a plan, it’s just different than the one he and I talked about and what I would recommend to him."

The New York Post reports free agent Johnny Manziel recently threw a party that caused $32,000 worth of damage at his rented Los Angeles area home.

Manziel apparently rented the house for only two days for the express purpose of partying. The renter is alleging the house was "strewn with booze and drugs" in addition to the damage. Manziel is hurtling toward rock bottom at alarming speed.
Apr 14 - 11:53 PM

Agent Drew Rosenhaus stated on Sirius NFL Radio that free agent Johnny Manziel is facing a "life and death situation."

After spending the last week partying in Hollywood, Rosenhaus says Manziel has returned to Texas, where he "needs to start working out and getting back to football." Rosenhaus called L.A. "not a good place for Manziel." It sounds like Manziel might've gotten a scare when he was involved in a hit-and-run in Hollywood last weekend. Rosenhaus confirmed that he has "terminated" his relationship with Manziel, but is open to "rescinding" the termination if Manziel checks into rehab within five days. He called Manziel "a young man who's in trouble."
Apr 13 - 9:34 PM

TMZ reports free agent Johnny Manziel was the passenger in a car used in a hit-and-run in Hollywood on Saturday, and he was picked up after the incident by suspended Browns WR Josh Gordon.

The driver is believed to be Manziel's pal Ryan Silverstein, a member of rapper Drake's crew. The vehicle hit a light pole and fled the scene. Manziel was picked up from the crash by Gordon. TMZ reports Manziel has been interviewed by police, but accused of no wrongdoing. Silverstein is reportedly being investigated for a misdemeanor. Neither Manziel nor Gordon appears to be in any trouble here, but at very least it's confirmation of their association during an apparent Spring of Fun out west. We have to admit -- we're kinda jealous.

Agent Drew Rosenhaus has parted ways with Johnny Manziel.

In 27 years as an NFL agent, Manziel is the first client Rosenhaus has ever fired. It basically sounds like an intervention. "I have terminated the standard representation with Johnny Manziel in the hopes of helping him get the treatment I believe he needs," Rosenhaus said. "I have informed him that if he takes the immediate steps I have outlined I will rescind and continue to represent him. I’m hoping he takes the necessary steps to get his life back on track." It's the second agent to drop Manziel and a likely response to his recent TMZ interview. Losing a high-profile agent like Rosenhaus is the latest setback in Manziel's disastrous and potentially career-threatening offseason.
Apr 13 - 7:42 PM

A source with "knowledge of the situation" tells Profootballtalk free agent Johnny Manziel is not living with suspended Browns WR Josh Gordon.

Whomever Manziel is living with, it shouldn't have much effect on his odds of suiting up for 2016, as they're essentially zero. What a silly, unfortunate circus.
Apr 12 - 6:29 PM

ESPN reports free agent Johnny Manziel is living with Josh Gordon.

Manziel's assertion that he was living with Von Miller was quickly refuted, but this is more believable since it's not coming from the quarterback himself. If true, it's a bad look for Gordon, who, unlike Manziel, had at least created the impression he's gotten his life in order. If Manziel's recent TMZ interview is any indication, his seems to be spiraling further out of control. It's extremely unlikely Manziel makes any 2016 appearances.

9 News Denver's Mike Klis disputes free agent Johnny Manziel's recent claim that he is living with Broncos LB Von Miller.

"Super Bowl MVP, Von Miller, my brother. I’m living with him right now," Manziel told TMZ. "We’re getting our lives together, bro." Miller's life is already together, and he isn't living with Manziel. Miller is currently living in a Los Angeles home provided by ABC's Dancing with the Stars. In addition to alcohol and/or drug addiction, Manziel appears to be detached from reality, or at least intent on trying to convince others he's "getting his life together."
Apr 10 - 8:23 PM

9 News' Mike Klis reports the Broncos "will not sign" free agent Johnny Manziel.

Headlines were made Thursday when it was reported coach Gary Kubiak reached out to Manziel following his ouster from the Browns, but it appears that connection was more personal than business, as both Kubiak and Manziel are Texas A&M alums. Never say never about something happening down the line if the Broncos still need a passer, but it's not happening right now.

Apr 8 - 9:53 AM

ESPN's Jeff Legwold reports coach Gary Kubiak has "spoken to" free agent Johnny Manziel about his fit with the Broncos.

It's juicy stuff, but longtime Broncos beat writer Mike Klis reports the team has "no plans" to sign the ex-Brown. Klis frames the chat as Kubiak mostly just reaching out to a fellow Texas A&M alum. ESPN's Adam Schefter is more diplomatic, saying Kubiak talked to Manziel about being a fit "down the line," but that the Broncos "want to see how his pending legal issues and potential NFL discipline are resolved." Denver is the first team Manziel has been linked to in any way since his release, but it would be a stretch to say it looks like something imminent is brewing. Per Schefter, Manziel is "likely" to be suspended even if he isn't charged in his domestic violence case.
Apr 7 - 2:28 PM

Free agent QB Johnny Manziel has hired Drew Rosenhaus as his new agent.

Rosenhaus represents many of the league's top talents including Antonio Brown, Rob Gronkowski, LeSean McCoy and Greg Hardy. It's going to take more than a high-powered agent for Manziel to find work. He's drawn zero interest since getting cut by the Browns and that won't change until teams are convinced his off-field life is in order. Even on the field, the undersized Manziel has been mediocre at best.
