It has been a confusing morning once again on Twitter, as a tweet by Adam Schefter that Byron Westbrook has been cut by the Redskins was openly questioned and then refuted by Rick Maese of the Washington Post.
Here is a taken transcript of what has happened thus far:
Many wanted RB Brian Westbrook to sign with Washington to play with brother Byron. But Redskins released Westbrook. No Wash Westbrooks now.
That sure seems like Redskins told Adam Schefter before they told Byron Westbrook. Hopefully we'll learn later that that's not the case.
Something funny with this Byron Westbrook story. Hopefully we clear it up soon. But no one seems to be aware of his release except Schefter
Confirmed: Byron Westbrook is still a member of the Redskins. He's making the trip to Arizona today and will play in Thursday's game
Now, obviously we are all a little sensitive about the accuracy of Twitter reporting since the Mike Wise firestorm that erupted earlier this week. Hopefully, Schefter just received some bad information from a source.
However, the problem with the original tweet for Schefter was that it stated that Westbrook had been released as a fact instead of a rumor. Hopefully, Schefter will resolve this situation sooner rather than later.
