Browns cornerback Brandon McDonald is starting to get attention for the wrong reasons.
As Florio pointed out in Sunday’s one-liners, Eric Mangini wasn’t pleased with McDonald’s dive into the end zone on Saturday. We wonder what Mangini will think about the tweet his cornerback sent when McDonald learned Terrell Owens was joining the division.
(A quick warning here: The tweet is somewhere between borderline offensive and completely tasteless, depending on
the eye of the beholder.)
“Bengals huh???” McDonald wrote. “Yessss, another piece of p**** fa da Browns secondary to [slang for gang rape using the word train.] . . . NoHomo . . . Let’s Goooo!!!! ITS TRU.”
McDonald’s missive went mostly undetected for 12 days until someone brought it up to Owens on Sunday morning.
“Who?” Owens asked. “I don’t even know who he is. Is he Ronald McDonald?”
T.O. may have joked less if McDonald’s full message was relayed, but Alex Marvez of FOXSports.com says that wasn’t the case.
Word must have quickly got back to McDonald or the Browns because the tweet was deleted sometime Sunday afternoon after 3PM. McDonald has enjoyed a fine training camp, but his role on the team is far from certain.
This attention won’t help.
