Jets’ Darrelle Revis: Trade Tweet Came From Hacker
NEW YORK (WFAN) — The Fourth of July was almost ruined for plugged-in Jets fans all over the Tri-State area.
A message was posted to Darrelle Revis’ Twitter page just after 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday, in which the star cornerback appeared to curse out agents Neil Schwartz and Jonathan Feinsod — along with business manager John Geiger — for “getting me traded.”
Barbecue-goers were eventually put at ease after about 20 minutes of social media madness.
The original message was deleted and Revis himself posted at 6:54 p.m.: “No worries, i was not traded and my account was hacked, i love @JohnGeiger_ and @schwartzfeinsod , thank you, have a safe and happy 4th!”
There’s still much uncertainty over whether the cornerback, seeking a new deal from New York, will report to training camp on time at SUNY Cortland.
“Jet for life” was later tweeted from Revis’ account and apparently deleted Thursday.
Geiger also took to Twitter to comfort fans of Gang Green.
“He was not traded, I am with @Revis24 as we speak he was hacked… Thank you be safe and have a great 4th,” Geiger wrote in a series of tweets. “Lol just changed his password for the 100th time. … “When the #jets win the Super Bowl this year we going to laugh about this.”
