Things aren't getting any better for Johnny Manziel, the embattled NFL quarterback who's been on a downward spiral for a while now. Manziel was released by the Cleveland Browns back in March, and now ESPN reports that his Nike contract has been terminated.
According to ESPN, a Nike spokesman said that Manziel is no longer a Nike athlete. It's unclear when Nike cut ties—Darren Rovell's sources say that the brand dropped Manziel at some point after the end of the NFL season.
Reports of Nike considering cutting Manziel from its list of endorsers surfaced in January, 2016.
Manziel signed a multi-year deal with Nike in 2014.
