Bills rookie running back C.J. Spiller and Eagles rookie defensive end Ricky Sapp played college football together at Clemson. Both players have Twitter accounts.
Moments ago, Sapp posted the following message: “How is everyone today?”
Spiller’s response? “Keep my name out ur mouth fag.”
It’s unclear what provoked Spiller. Earlier in the day, Sapp told another Twitter user that “I feel u starting to get on my bad side like [Spiller].”
Sapps’ response to Spiller’s tweet? “Well well look who it is… Go make a bed on the highway thanks.”
Look for Spiller to face a fine from the league and/or the Bills. Last year, former Chiefs running back Larry Johnson used the same term in a Twitter message, and he allegedly uttered a similar term while speaking to the media. He received a two-week suspension from the team; eventually, the team and the NFLPA agreed that the suspension would stand, but that Johnson would lose only one game check.
