Atlanta Falcons star Takk McKinleyHis Twitter fingers have only caused him to change a little … with the team supposedly handling the defense after his recent Twitter outbursts.
McKinley – 2017’s first round player – appeared to be called the Falcons office clowns after a trading deadline this week … claiming the team should have pulled the trigger when he wanted to leave town last season.
“These @AtlantaFalcons rejected the 2nd round draft option when I asked to be traded last year,” Takk tweeted Wednesday.
“It was also @AtlantaFalcons that rejected the 5th and 6th round draft selection from many teams when I asked to be traded this year. I only have 17.5 career bags.”
While the team rejects any practical offer given, the head coach is interim Raheem Morris made it clear that he was NOT pleased with McKinley’s decision to speak out of his disappointment on Twitter.
“Takk will definitely have to take responsibility for his actions and everything that happens to it,” said the coach.
Now, we know what that means … with The Atlanta-Constitution Magazine Takk report was fined an undisclosed amount for the tweet.
Whether the two sides can make up is in doubt – the team has rejected his fifth year option and have not ruled out McKinley’s cut-off or suspending him.
As for Takk’s tweet … it’s still on his account.
