Between Antonio Brown being traded to the Oakland Raiders, Odell Beckham going to the Browns, and the Jets signing Le’Veon Bell, it’s been quite a newsworthy week for the NFL.
It’s also been, at least in the cases of Brown and Bell, a wake-up call to every other professional athlete that if you are a big enough diva then you can get all the money.
But that’s not why we’re here today. We’re here because after Le’Veon Bell agreed to a 4-year, $52.5 million contract with the Jets, people went looking through his old tweets (as people do), and discovered a whole bunch of tweets Bell has made about his new team.
Turns out, Le’Veon Bell has apparently been a Jets fan for some time now.
This, however, might be the best tweet of them all. It also is one that has, not surprisingly, been deleted from Bell’s Twitter account.

Remember when Leveon Bell tweeted $60 million wasn’t enough for him to run with the Jets? A tweet he’s since deleted. Pepperidge farm remembers. #NFLFreeAgency pic.twitter.com/voWaNhZYNZ

Wait, I thought it was $100 million Bell needed to sign with the Jets…
Eh, $100 million… $52.5 million… pretty much the same thing, right?
