Johnny Manziel has a new agent.

The troubled free-agent quarterback hired high-profile agent Drew Rosenhaus to represent him, according to a listing on the NFL Players Association website.

Rosenhaus replaces Manziel's former agent, Erik Burkhardt, who parted ways with the 2014 first-round pick after the 2015 season.

"It has become painfully obvious that (Manziel's) future rests solely in his own hands," Burkhardt said when he split with Manziel. "His family and I have gone to great lengths to outline the steps we feel he must take to get his life in order.

"Accountability is the foundation of any relationship, and without it, the function of my work is counterproductive."

Manziel's off-the-field difficulties continued during the offseason when Dallas police referred a February domestic violence case involving Manziel to a grand jury, which will convene in April. He faces possible criminal charges in the case.

The NFL is also investigating Manziel and could suspend him for his off-the-field behavior.

The Cleveland Browns released Manziel earlier this month after two mostly unproductive years with the franchise.
