Johnny Manziel reportedly wants to be cut by the Cleveland Browns but he’s been dropped by someone else.  On the same day Cleveland Cavaliers star LeBron James expressed concern for Manziel, James’ marketing firm said it will no longer be working with Manziel.

James’ business manager, Maverick Carter, told cleveland.com that LRMR Management Co. no longer will represent Manziel, whose troubles off the field since being drafted by the Browns in 2014 have been well-documented.

Earlier Wednesday, James said he was concerned for Manziel individually.

His comments came after Manziel was rumored to have been in Las Vegas on Saturday night. Manziel, who has been in the NFL’s concussion protocol, missed a check-in with Browns officials Sunday morning. The team later said it didn’t know where he was.

“It’s just a distraction for not only himself, but for everyone that’s around him, including family, people that represent him, the people that are around him. And he’ll figure it out at some point. We all hope.”

Manziel signed LRMR as his marketing agent out of Texas A&M in 2014. In the 2014 season, he saluted James for being a type of mentor.

“He’s done a good job, which I’m thankful for, of kind of checking in on me, making sure things are good,” Manziel said of James in October 2014. “I’ve gone out to his house a couple of times and gotten the chance to kind of get away and relax.”
