As we were reminded this week, there are hundreds of NFL players on Twitter, and they tweet the darndest things. Not all of them make headlines, but here’s a random look at what some NFL players are up to Friday, based on their recent tweets…
For starters, happy birthday to Giants WR Steve Smith – @SteveSmithNY – who thanked his followers for their well-wishes and added, “we like wine better wit age.”
Bears RB Matt Forte – @MattForte22 — is looking for a new pet. He tweeted: “Anyone know a place in Illinois that sells pure bred staffordshire bull terriers?”
Seahawks OT Russell Okung – @BDR76 — tweeted, “Great day in Houston. Getting my baby washed.” … Not sure if he’s referring to a child, girlfriend or a car.
Steelers LB James Farrior – @JamesFarrior — had some fun with his teammate, Hines Ward, who made news earlier this week when he was mistakenly detained by police: “Damn Hines, stop stealing cars bro. Ur rich:)”
Cardinals WR Larry Fitzgerald – @LarryFitzgerald — tweeted out a photo of himself and a recognizable former teammate as they were doing a good deed: “Me and @kurt13warner doing fittings of hearing aids in Mexico.
Former Maryland receiver Torrey Smith — @TorreySmithWR — apparently is still very excited about being drafted by the Ravens last weekend. So much so that he’s having trouble focusing on his driving: “Sooo I wasn’t paying attention and missed the exit…..just added 30 mins to the trip.”
