Three bizarre tweets today are sparking some confusion among some San Francisco 49ers fans. No one is really sure what sparked the tweets or why the authors posted them in the first place.
The first was from earlier today by ESPN's Jim Trotter and was posted about an hour after Darnell Dockett's release.
I'll just say this: The chatter coming from the 49ers locker room is not good. At all.— Jim Trotter (@JimTrotter_NFL) September 4, 2015
The second came later in the day and was by 49ers WR Torrey Smith.
Some things don't make sense to me— Torrey Smith (@TorreySmithWR) September 4, 2015
The third was by former NFL scout and contributor to CSN Bay Area, John Middlekauff.
Some weird stuff today swirling around the #49ers. Not really sure why I'm remotely surprised. Been a bizarre training camp— John Middlekauff (@JohnMiddlekauff) September 4, 2015
What does it mean? No one seems to know. How does Smith's comment fit into it -- if at all. Was Smith posting about something personal or team related? He followed his tweet with two more posts about interviewing for jobs out of college ... so ... maybe not. Are Trotter and Middlekauff referring to the team's crazy offseason or some developing story? Are the players upset about the recent release of a player? Is a surprise roster move in the works? Is there some negativity in the locker room? Are Jed York and Jim Harbaugh now best buds? What?!!!
There were some somewhat surprising cuts today, but nothing totally shocking or signaling self-destruction. That makes the tweets even more bizarre.
It may be nothing. Hopefully it is nothing. We shall see.
Y'all do know my last 3 tweets weren't football related right— Torrey Smith (@TorreySmithWR) September 4, 2015
Whew. We do now. Um ... Torrey ... any idea what Trotter is talking about?
