Cleveland Browns player takes shot at NFL team over Twitter

Cleveland Browns Safety Donte Whitner has caused a stir on Twitter after launching an attack on the NFL Network, the Buffalo Bills and former Bills Linebacker Darryl Talley.

NFL Network revealed its annual top 100 players as voted for by the NFL players themselves on Thursday night and Whitner's omission did not sit well with the former San Francisco 49ers star.

He took to Twitter to question the voting process for the annual tradition, claiming first that: "The people @nflnetwork votes on that!"

the Network responded with a simple "no we don't".

Whitner then claimed that none of the 49ers locker room voted and none of his friends from around the league did either.

Its not exactly clear why but he soon turned his attention to his former team and began mocking their possible relocation.

Tweeting first "Wonder how you Bills fans gonna feel when the team is moved? LOL"

Then asking "Can you say Toronto Bills?!?!?!?!"

As you can imagine, the Bills fans were not happy with this as the Twitter universe exploded in either support of Whitner's claims to be one of the top 100 or criticism of his tweets.

Former Bills Linebacker Darryl Talley and his wife would intervene in the name of the Buffalo franchise as Talley's wife and Whitner exchanged insults.

The insults got very personal including shots at Talley's children, at that point Talley himself got involved and claimed "I'm gonna have 2 go all Louis Vuitton suitcase on this negro"

He then elaborated and said "When u come out the tunnel in November look up and left. U'll never see ur name there or anywhere."

It all came to a heated end with Whitner challenging Talley to a boxing match and promising that he would come to Orlando and they could get it on.

Talley responded as the more level headed one highlighting the fact that they are football players and then challenged him to "stats".

So Whitner may have lost a lot of fans and a lot of respect following his Twitter escapades but I think everyone in the football world wants to see what will happen next in the story with the former Bills Linebacker.
