D.J. Fluker may have had his Twitter account hacked. At least that is the story his agent is relaying this morning just days ahead of the NFL Draft. The Alabama tackle sent out a tweet early Tuesday morning saying he took money in college, saying "Agents was tryin to pimp me so I pimped them." The tweet was apparently deleted almost immediately and his agent sent out a tweet claiming the account had been hacked.

A quick check on Fluker's account tends to support the idea the account was hacked. His tweets are generally quick replies to others or straight retweets of others, and he mixes in the occasional bible verse here and there. Also, it looks to be extremely rare when Fluker shares much of a personal opinion on his timeline. The tweet pictured above does seem to go against the grain for Fluker's Twitter activity.

Even if the account was hacked, and I tend to think it was, the timing of it all comes at a somewhat sensitive time. Fluker may not see his NFL Draft stock affected by this news, but as the debate over whether to pay players or not continues to escalate this will add at least a little bit of fuel to the fire. The tweet occurred overnight so there has been no response from Alabama. Whether they make one or not remains to be seen, but we will keep an eye on it just in case.
