Free agent quarterback Johnny Manziel is hiring Drew Rosenhaus as his agent.

That’s not from a movie script. It’s something Jason LaCanfora of CBS Sports presented in a series of tweets Saturday afternoon, then confirmed that Manziel has hired Rosenhaus.

Manziel was released by the Browns after the start of the league year, and Rosenhaus will have to do one his best sales jobs yet in attempting to convince a team to take a chance on Manziel. If Manziel does get another chance to play in the NFL, it’s not likely to be immediately. A team wanting to pursue Manziel would likely need clearance from ownership and assurance from Manziel that he’s serious about football.

Manziel’s former agent, Erik Burkhardt, cut ties with him after last season, saying that Manziel needed to get his life in order.
