Johnny Manziel loses endorsement deal with Nike

Johnny Manziel loses endorsement deal with Nike

After being involved in different issues, it looks like Johnny Manziel is losing some money after Nike terminated his endorsement deal according to a Twitter post by Darren Rovell of ESPN.

Nothing was going right for the former Cleveland Browns quarterback since his first issue after a video of him went viral where he was partying in a bye week. He became positive after having a drug test and became a free agent after Cleveland Browns released him in March.

According to a report at Associated Press, Manziel is expected to face the Dallas grand jury after allegedly hitting his ex-girlfriend Colleen Crowley that resulted for her to a temporary loss of hearing for one year.

After the incident, Lebron James’ LRMR marketing agency decided to end ties with the former Cleveland Browns quarterback.

“I will continue to support and advise him as a friend,” Carter said via Sports Illustrated. “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.”

Also, Drew Rosenhaus, Manziel’s agent, confirmed that he will not be handling the quarterback after being involved in different issues. Rosenhaus already warned Manziel that he will drop him if the quarterback will not undergo a rehabilitation program.

Instead of giving sympathy for Manziel, some people in the social media sites specifically on Twitter were asking why did Nike take too long to end Johnny Manziel’s endorsement deal. It seemed like Manziel was gaining haters in social media sites and losing fans.

Johnny Manziel was considered the most popular player in 2014 NFL Draft and a great player on the field who knew a lot about winning, but with everything that is happening in his career now, it seemed like being a great athlete means nothing if you do not have the right attitude.
