In case you needed a reminder, Adam Schefter is the king of NFL news. There is nobody as connected as the ESPN reporter, and he is almost always the first to every big story. He also has an incredible sense of humor and put it on display once again via Twitter on Tuesday morning.
First and foremost, the Le’Veon Bell news is serious business. One of the best players in the entire league is obviously unhappy with something within the Pittsburgh Steelers organization and failed to make a long-term deal happen by the deadline.
That means the Pro Bowl running back, who had a career-high 321 carries for 1,291 yards and a career-high 85 receptions with 11 total touchdowns in 2017, will be a free agent before the 2019 season.
Bell reportedly turned down a contract worth $70 million, too, which is just wild to think about, and will earn $14.5 million on another franchise tag.
The deal, or lack thereof, was tough for all parties.
Then, after the news sank in, Schefter flew in from the top rope to deliver this hilarious gem.
For those who do not understand the reference, the Golden State Warriors have won three of the last four NBA Finals and boast one of the greatest rosters the league has ever seen, including this offseason when they signed All-Star DeMarcus Cousins.
Adrian Wojnarowski, whom he tagged, is NBA equivalent to Schefter and the NFL.
Signing Bell would obviously be unfair to everyone considering the Warriors already have five superstars.
Of course, shortly after, Schefter returned to business.
Bell, a two-time First-Team All-Pro and three-time Pro Bowl running back has amassed almost 8,000 yards from scrimmage since he entered the NFL in 2013. There is no doubt he will be a hot commodity in free agency next summer.
There is also no doubt Schefter will be there to report it, and we can all hope he brings some humor to the situation again soon.
