Vontae Davis claims he was hacked, no tampering

Tampering-except-when-it-really-isn’t has now been replaced (or augmented) by hacking-except-when-it-really-isn’t.

The latest athlete trying to put Twitter toothpaste back in the tube is Colts cornerback Vontae Davis, who said about an hour ago that former Dolphins teammate Sean Smith was already talking to the Chiefs.

Which would be, of course, illegal.

“I seen my dude Sean Smith last night he said he talking to KC him & B Flowers will makes a good Duo,” Davis tweeted from his verified account at 1:39 p.m.

Perhaps notified that this isn’t really within the rules, Davis came back at 2:01 p.m. with “My Twitter was Hack I did not see Sean Smith last night!!”

Then he followed at 2:04 p.m. with “WOW hackers do any & Everything!”

Perhaps the same kind of bored tech geniuses that hacked into Jeep and Burger King’s Twitter accounts got to Davis.

Or maybe someone else, who shares his Affinity for random Capitalization, did.

Or maybe he left his phone sitting on the table at lunch and someone decided to have some fun with him.

Or maybe he said something he was supposed to know and not say.

The league has opened a three-day tampering window for free agents, but three months wouldn’t be enough to stop it from happening.

So until or unless Smith actually signs with the Chiefs, we’re actually less worried about that than Davis’s online security.

    If a player under contract with another team is talking to the “chiefs” i.e. players just discussing the possibility of playing for that franchise rather than coaches/personnel other decision makers, it isn’t really tampering, is it?

    Vontae, just because you’re dumber than a box of rocks, it doesn’t mean that everyone else is also dumber than a box of rocks.

    Nobody believes you.

    Thats what you get for making your pw vontaedavis123. No havker would waste their time on your twitter account bro. Youre a nobody.

    As a Dolphins fan, I don’t really care. I’d imagine (well…I hope) the Dolphins are currently talking to/tampering Mike Wallace. Happens all the time.

    Obviously he was hacked — what player would willingly talk to Kansas City?

    Tweeting only makes you look like a twit.

    Hackers know how to use punctuation. Vontae, not so much.

    Every time one of these idiots says something stupid, it’s “I got hacked!”.

    Hey Vontae;

    If someone actually did “hack” your account (learn what the word hack actually means btw, reverting a PW isn’t hacking), you wouldn’t have been able to post anything within 20 minutes of realizing your screw up. Would you like to try again?

    If a player is talking about playing for another team while he is under contract, then said team must have approached him in some form. Why would a player just be randomly talking about playing for a certain team without having some knowledge that the team wants to sign him? It wouldn’t make any sense. Players do it, coaches do it and so do scouts. They just all attempt to keep it under wraps. Some do a better job than others.

    Vontae Davis can’t string a sentence together, so I doubt he’s got this story right. He wouldn’t know what “hacking’ means. He was embarassing when he was ever interviewed while a Dolphin.

    Vontae Davis needs to take a lesson from current wrestler and former olympian. Don’t give people your pw so you dont get “hacked.”

  14. kaprajan says: Feb 27, 2013 3:19 PM

    boggles my mind that when your an employee for a company (NFL) you dont know all the rules..sad really

    Some of you are twisting this a bit. I think his exact words are “He Talking to KC” To me this sounds like he is talking to KC not about possibilities of joining KC. Now if this happens and Smith signs with KC at midnight (all parties involved are dumb enough to do this) when free agency begins, I think the league has enough cause to investigate for tampering.

    And people were wondering why Miami sent this 9 year old packing for a 2nd. Good move but bad move ever wasting a 1st on him…….

    Vontae was never the sharpest tool in the shed.

    Oh no… I gotta call my grandma

    “Hard Knocks” really demonstrated last year that this guy is not the brightest bulb in the lamp. Social media is easily documented proof of one’s ignorance, and many people shouldn’t use it. Oh and make sure it doesn’t get “hacked”.

  19. turfrage says: Feb 28, 2013 12:29 AM

    If a player is talking to a team it’s about playing. The duo comment was Davis’s opinion.

    This fool makes Luck look intelligent.
