Owners and player reps engage in verbal sparring in negotiations for around three weeks, and now, two of the Dallas Cowboys’ NFC East rivals are doing the same, via that popular social networking device known as Twitter.
Basically, the Philadelphia Eagles’ LeSean McCoy believes New York Giants’ defensive lineman Osi Umenyiora is overrated. He said as much on the aforementioned Twitter on Wednesday. McCoy responded to a Tweet concerning Umenyiora’s claim that the Giants’ had failed to make good on a promise to renegotiate his contract by tweeting (sic, of course), per CSN Philadelphia, “Overrated n soft 3rd best d-line on his team honestly.”
The argument could have been made that McCoy was joking--could have. But when Eagles linebacker Jamar Chaney responded to McCoy’s tweet with (again, sic) “Lol. Boi u a fool,” McCoy shot back “call it how I see it.”
Luckily for the Eagles, the Cowboys and the Washington Redskins, multiple reports have Umenyiora, who had 11 1/2 sacks in 2010, leaving New York once the lockout comes to an end.
