As if fireworks, barbecue, celebrating independence, family and friends could not make today exciting enough, the 4th of July holiday almost got even more exciting. ProFootballTalk.com is reporting that Darrelle Revis’ twitter was hacked today.

The hacker wanted nothing more than to create a little panic amongst New York Jets fans. Apparently, the hacker posted via Revis’ twitter that the self proclaimed “best cornerback in the NFL” had been traded.

The tweet is no longer on Revis’ feed and the Jets’ cornerback has reclaimed his account, posting a tweet to calm his fans.

no worries, i was not traded and my account was hacked, i love @JohnGeiger_ and @schwartzfeinsod , thank you, have a safe and happy 4th!

— Darrelle Revis (@Revis24) July 4, 2012

Though a holiday trade would be a shocker, it’s not unprecedented.  The Redskins traded for Donovan McNabb on Easter Sunday in 2010.

Hopefully every one is having an eventful July 4th and enjoying the holiday.
