The NFL is investigating a fantasy football player who threatened New York Giants running back Brandon Jacobs with his life if he did not run for 50 yards and score two touchdowns in Monday’s football game.
Jacobs ultimately could not play because of an injury, but he on Tuesday exposed the “cyber gangsters” that were angry at him because they had started him on their fantasy football teams.
One Twitter user named “Andre Raynor” wrote, “FULFILL MY ORDERS STATED IN THE PREVIOUS TWEET OR THATS YO LIFE BRUH AND IM NOT PLAYING.”
The Twitter user had written that if Jacobs did not rush for 50 yard sand two touchdowns that it would be “OVER” for “YOU AND YO FAMILY.”
The NFL is reportedly investigating the Tweet, and the user reportedly changed his Twitter account and has claimed his threat was not a legitimate one. The tweeter then apologized and asked for Jacobs’s forgiveness.
