Manti Te’o may have made his life slightly easier if he got off Twitter a long time ago, but his account remained active through Super Bowl Sunday. According to ESPN.com, Te’o has decided to quit tweeting for an unknown period of time while he prepares himself for the NFL Draft, which will take place from April 25-27. Te’o's decision to quit Twitter was somewhat abrupt. During Super Bowl XLVII between the San Francisco 49ers and Baltimore Ravens on Sunday, he was one of a number of athletes and celebrities who seemed to highly approve of Beyonce’s halftime performance. As we showed you on Sunday night, Beyonce’s act was a huge hit with a number of big names on Twitter. The former Notre Dame linebacker was one of them, but his account was gone by the time the game ended on a controversial no-call in the end zone. Considering the unbelievable turn of events that has taken place in Te’o's life over the past month, the last thing he needs is any additional distractions as he attempts to improve his draft stock before April. Staying away from social media until he finds a home in the NFL is probably a good idea. The post Manti Te’o tweeted during the Super Bowl, then quit Twitter until after NFL Draft appeared first on Larry Brown Sports.

RUMORS & GOSSIP

DeMarco Murray: 'I'm not worried about the Cowboys'

The Dallas Cowboys made it quite easy for running back DeMarco Murray to seek out other teams last month after they did not offer him the contract he desired. Along came the Philadelphia Eagles with their deep pockets, who signed Murray to a five-year, $40 million contract. This was a price tag that the Cowboys were not willing to pay to keep Murray playing in Dallas. Harboring...

Turner has great quote in defense of Bridgewater

Minnesota Vikings’ quarterback Teddy Bridgewater choked during a particular portion of his pro day workout last year. This was something that may have caused him to slip to the 32nd overall pick in last year’s draft. The exact drill where Bridgewater struggled was when he was to throw a pass over raised brooms which were supposed to simulate an oncoming pass rush. Bridgewater’s...

Gary Bettman's quote about expansion makes no sense

Expansion continues to be a hot topic in the NHL and Gary Bettman was recently asked about the possibility of a new team joining the Eastern Conference. Based on the current structure of the league (14 teams in the West and 16 in the East), the obvious solution is to place two teams in the West to balance things out. Would Bettman consider adding a team in the East if the right...

Beltre sends Richards invoice for three broken bats

Garrett Richards displayed his Cy Young contender stuff during a win Friday against the Texas Rangers in just his second start of the season. The 26-year-old went seven strong innings allowing just three hits, three walks, and two runs in the Angels’ 3-2 win. Among his highlights included holding Rangers cleanup hitter Adrian Beltre to...Read More

Herschel Walker: Vikings should trade Adrian Peterson

Former Minnesota Vikings running back Herschel Walker is no stranger to blockbuster NFL trades. The two-time Pro Bowler was involved in the biggest trade in modern NFL history when he was sent from the Dallas Cowboys to Minnesota for a bevy of players and picks that helped set up the Cowboys dynasty of the 1990’s. Over 25 years removed from that trade, Walker is speaking up...

Report: Raiders fielding calls about fourth overall pick

Depending on how the top-three picks in the upcoming 2015 NFL draft play out, the Oakland Raiders could very well be trade-down candidates. It’s likely that their primary target at this point is USC defensive lineman Leonard Williams, who most experts conclude is the best all-around defensive player in the draft. However, there’s a decent possibility that the Tennessee Titans...

WATCH: UAB football player brings helmet to graduation

Earlier, we shared tweets from UAB linebacker Derek Slaughter, who planned to wear his football helmet during the school’s commencement ceremony to protest the dissolution of the program. Now, we have video of Slaughter crossing the stage, and it doesn’t disappoint for those who agree with his stance. Slaughter snubs president Ray Watts on the handshake as he crosses the stage...

Andrew Luck to students: 'I'm only 25, I don't have advice'

Indianapolis Colts’ quarterback Andrew Luck was invited to participate in a lecture series at DePaul University. When asked if he had any advice to give the assembled crowd of students, Luck, with his dry sense of humor, stated this (via the Indy Star). As far as advice? I’m only 25. I don’t have any advice. Luck was also asked other questions during his appearance...

Mark Sanchez: Tebow is another arm while Bradford recovers

Now that they have signed Tim Tebow to a one-year contract, the Philadelphia Eagles have a very crowded depth chart at the quarterback position. Assuming Tebow isn’t going to play another position, there is no way he, Sam Bradford, Mark Sanchez and Matt Barkley all make the 53-man roster. Did Sanchez already hint that Tebow...Read More

Report: Former LSU CB Jalen Collins failed multiple drug tests

Less than a week before the draft isn’t exactly the best timing for information like this to come out. According to NFL Media insider Albert Breer, former LSU cornerback Jalen Collins failed multiple drug tests during his college days. There is no information regarding what drug Collins tested positive for, but this latest piece of information will likely drop Collins, who was...
