Browns safety Donte Whitner cracked a joke about the Bills leaving Buffalo last night and ended up chirping back and forth on Twitter with former Bills linebacker Darryl Talley and his wife.
The Browns' newest safety has decided against legally changing his name to Donte Hitner, and not for the obvious reason that you totally read it as something else upon first glance.
It's not just Twitter bluster; 49ers safety Donte Whitner says he's filed the necessary paperwork to have his last name officially changed to Donte Hitner.
On Tuesday, Nnamdi Asomugha agreed to a contract with the San Francisco 49ers. On Wednesday, Niners safety Donte Whitner tweeted out "Fuck nnamdi." A few minutes later, he deleted the tweet and said "somebody hacked me again." He later mentioned NFL security was looking into the matter.
Legal? According to the NFL. Safe? Smart? You make the call. [Fox]
Buffalo's up next, and... I dunno. I don't really have a lot to say about Buffalo. No one on ESPN does, either, apparently. They can't stop talking about Leinart and Cutler. Not a word about the Bills or their needs yet. Maybe there's just no one there to talk about, and they don't know where to start.
