After more than 12 hours of silence on his Twitter page, which had folks buzzing over hints that receiver Brandon Marshall could be heading from Denver to New York, Jets safety Kerry Rhodes says that he wasn’t referring to the potential trade for Marshall when promising a “big announcement” on Sunday night.
Rhodes posted, and then deleted, a tweet indicating that a trade for Marshall wasn’t the big news to which he was referring. But the deleted tweet added that the trade for Marshall “may happen.”
(Though he also posted, as some of you have pointed out in the comments, that the big news isn’t that a Marshall trade, the point here — for those of you who were unable to comprehend the prior paragraph and who likely won’t comprehend this parenthetical, either — is that Rhodes tweeted that Marshall wasn’t the big news to which Rhodes was referring, that the Marshall trade “may happen,” and that Rhodes thereafter deleted the tweet.)
Rhodes now says on his Twitter page: “everyone the news will b mad 2morrow and if you really are a JET fan you will appreciate the news!“
He then reiterated the news is coming Tuesday: “it will b told tommorow seriously i wont lie to my fans and fans of the jets.”
Already, it sounds like we’re all in for a letdown on this one.
Unless Rhodes deleted the other tweet because a trade for Marshall still might happen.
