Williamsville Store Puts Up Sign: Bengals CB Eli Apple is Banned
The NFL world is a hot issue on Twitter right now, for a few reasons.
For one, the reports from Peter King and Adam Schefter that Aaron Rodgers could be traded this off-season. King says the Packers would like at least two first round picks and the Jets are willing to pay that price. Schefter says the Packers only want to trade Rodgers to the AFC.
Then there's the Dallas Cowboys, who are under fire for their article and tweet that seems to throw starting quarterback Dak Prescott under the bus.
Finally, there's Cincinnati Bengals cornerback Eli Apple.
Apple is famous for trolling teams on Twitter and this is dating back a while. He took to Twitter on Monday night to make fun of the Buffalo Bills, Stefon Diggs and Josh Allen.
However, one tweet went viral and it did not sit well with Bills fans or players. It seems to make fun of Damar Hamlin's situation.
Bills defensive end Shaq Lawson says these are fighting words to Eli Apple.
On Tuesday afternoon, Dave & Adams Card World sports memorabilia store in Williamsville tweeted out that they have put this new sign up, which bans Bengals cornerback Eli Apple from their stores.
Apple is clearly trolling for quick laughs but the tweet in reference to Hamlin was a step too far.
He's clearly been the weak link in the Bengals secondary this season and his contract is up in 2023. We will see if the Bengals bring him back but we know one thing, the Bills certainly won't be interesting in signing him.
