Defensive tackle A.J. Francis signed with the New York Giants today after being released by his former team, Washington, on Monday. He celebrated the move with an Instagram post that’s way more good riddance than goodbye.

“When the team you were on didn’t appreciate you but the team you played against actually pays attention to the film,” he wrote, followed by a string of hashtags, including the dates of the upcoming season’s two games between Washington and New York and #AndYourLogoIsRacist.


Francis played in six games for Washington last year after starting his career by appearing in a combined three games for the Dolphins and Seahawks in 2015.
