Hoping to play for the Minnesota Vikings, potential NFL prospects to be? Then you better watch what you say and post on Twitter, Facebook, Instagram and any other social media sites out there because the Vikings are watching you.

According to USA Today, Minnesota has/is flagging prospects over their social media use.

“There were guys I found on Twitter this year that I can’t believe they would post and re-Tweet some of the stuff they were saying,” Spielman said inside the Lucas Oil Stadium. “We wrote a report just on their Twitter accounts.

“I won’t say the names. But out of the 60 that we did, there are eight guys that we have concerns about their Twitter feeds that we will address here.”

The Vikings went on to suggest that the reason the accounts were flagged for maturity issues and hinted they were shocked at some of the stuff the players would post.

Hard to disagree given some of the stuff I’ve seen from the NFL draft prospects.

You’d think they’d be told to be on their best behavior.
