Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio and NFL Network's Michael Silver get snippy over Hue Jackson-Nick Foles situation.
1. Sports media people getting salty with each other on Twitter is a daily occurence. We're basically all big babies and very sensitive. So in order for a Twitter fight to stand out, it has to be REALLY good. That is definitely the case today with Pro Football Talk's Mike Florio and the NFL Network's Michael Silver.
The latter broke a story yesterday that said quarterback Nick Foles turned down the opportunity to get traded to the Browns and start for them so he could remain in Philly. For some reason, this report caused Florio to go all in on Silver and Browns coach, Hue Jackson. The exchange then ended with Silver getting downright disrespectful.
I'm sure that Hue Jackson leaking that the Browns tried to trade for Nick Foles will go over well with his boss.— ProFootballTalk (@ProFootballTalk) May 22, 2018
