Jets wide receiver David Clowney has written a new chapter in the growing book about players doing things they later regret on Twitter.
Clowney’s words had repercussions quickly. They got him planted on the bench by Jets coach Rex Ryan.
The offending tweet was pretty tame. After the Jets win over the Patriots, Clowney wrote: “1 play in the 1st Half, 4 plays in the 2nd half . . . A bit disappointed
about my playing time but very happy and satisfied about the win.”
Ryan found out about the comments, and decided to bench Clowney completely for Sunday’s game against Tennessee.
“I was upset with him,” said Ryan. “No individual is bigger than the team.”
