They say the shortest path to the unemployment line is poor play. In Tony Carter’s case, however, it may be his warped sense of “humor.”
On Monday night, the Broncos cornerback was at a local movie theater and tweeted a reference to the July shooting in Aurora, Colo. that left 12 dead and 58 injured.
“At a late night movie in Denver yall pray for me!” Carter tweeted, via KDVR-TV.
Shortly after, he deleted the tasteless tweet and followed it up with “No Disrespect!!!” That tweet was also deleted.
On Tuesday morning, Carter issued an apology for what he deemed an “insensitive and inappropriate comment.”
I am truly sorry for the insensitive and inappropriate comment I made last night. It will never happen again.

Denver, CO. The NFL is full of stats, as anything and everything that happens on the gridiron is tracked without fail. Numbers rule this game, and many times it is these numbers that explain why a given team is not living up to expectations, or on the other hand, why another given team is surprising everyone and getting the job done. A lot of the stats truly do end up being somewhat...
After banging Buffalo for 45 second-half points in Week 4, the Patriots continued their offensive role by subduing an old foe on Sunday.

All fans believe they are the most devoted group.
