Former NFL safety Hamza Abdullah goes on Twitter tirade

Former NFL player Hamza Abdullah took to twitter today and really unloaded on the NFL.  The language is a little too colorful for this forum, but he can be found @HamzaAbdullah21.  Abdullah played in the NFL from 2005 until 2011 that included stops with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, Denver Broncos, Cleveland Browns and Arizona Cardinals before he and his brother took a pilgrammege to Mecca as part of their Muslim faith in 2012.  It is unclear if he intends to try to continue playing football or if this tirade was more or less the end of his NFL career.

Among the things he touched on were the greed of the NFL, the fact that the NFL covered up injuries and does not take care of its work force.  Further, he took aim at the Denver Broncos without mentioning them by name.  Instead, he simply said that in 2007, he was knocked out and according to the team (which was the Broncos), they reported that he had lost a contact.  It is unclear what prompted Abdullah to go off on the NFL today, but one thing is clear and that is this story is not over and there will be all kinds of media outlets reaching out to him to get an interview and give him the opportunity to further explain.
