It never ends, this shit.
Now I don’t know who @HowardIsANet is, but I love his gumption. A couple of hours ago, he tweeted that the radio station WFAN660 was reporting that free agent cornerback Nnamdi Asomugha was going to the New York Jets’ headquarters.
@HowardIsANet has four followers and about ten tweets. Not a very respectable source, right? Just the type of account that somebody like @NFLDraftInsider might want to ignore after what happened last time.
But nope — as expected, our favorite NFL Draft Insider immediately echoed it. Though he’s since deleted the tweet, another user retweeted it.
Update: @NFLDraftInsider says he didn’t tweet it; he “quoted it and asked if it was true.” Since the tweet no longer exists, I’ll give him the benefit of the doubt and assume he was only incompetent enough to propagate a random rumor from a Twitter account with four followers, not incompetent enough to actually confirm it.
WFAN was quick to respond.
And even NFLDraftInsider’s loyal fans questioned him.
This is all one big joke, right? Right? RIGHT?
