Johnny Manziel backs agent after public statement

Just an hour after agent Erik Burkhardt issued an inflammatory statement that criticized the CFL and presented an ultimatum to the Ticats, Johnny Manziel tweeted out his support.

It’s clear both player and agent are in lockstep. The two have broken up and gotten back together once before and the relationship seems stronger than ever.

Whether or not the ploy to take the negotiations public works like a well-schemed offensive play is to be seen.
