Chargers fans were up in arms on Monday afternoon following a tweet that surfaced insinuating that their Pro Bowl free safety Eric Weddle had been traded to the AFC West rival Broncos. The fans weren’t the first to be hit with the fake news.
By the way, @davidcanter pulled the prank, first and foremost, on Eric Weddle himself. Weddle fell for it at first. Hilarious.
Although Rahim Moore had a disappointing performance in the AFC Divisional Round, the Broncos said at the NFL Combine that they will stick with the young safety. As for Weddle, he’s been a consistent playmaker for the Chargers, and this move would have been devastating to an up-and-coming unit.
