With NFL free agency set to begin at 4 p.m. on Tuesday, and many deals already announced, NFL watchers were keeping a close eye on Twitter to see which players or insiders announced the next big move.

That atmosphere set the table for a hilarious misunderstanding after LeGarrette Blount, who is not even a free agent, sent out this tweet.

Many Patriots fans were sad to see the running back go, and Cardinals fans were happy to have the running back on board. Unfortunately, they all overreacted.

Whether Blount was knowingly teasing his followers, or just really excited to go on vacation is unknown, but hopefully it will set off a chain reaction of athletes announcing travel plans around trade deadlines and free agency.
