As it turns out, Takk McKinley has some old tweets bashing the Cincinnati Bengals, which fans won’t like now that they’ve signed him.
The terrible relationship between defensive end Takkarist McKinley and the Atlanta Falcons officially came to an end, with the team releasing their former first-round pick earlier this week. Fortunately for the Cincinnati Bengals, they were able to claim McKinnley and he’s now ready to make plays for the defense.
While Bengals fans might be thrilled at the thought of the speedy defensive end going to work in the trenches, they’re surely not going to love what McKinley previously had to say about his new team. Nope, they’re not going to like it one bit.
An old tweet from defensive end Takkarist McKinley shows he used to think Cincinnati sucked
As you can see above, McKinley hasn’t always thought too highly of his new organization. Things didn’t end there, though, as the 6-foot-2, 265-pounder also had other tweets where he decided to bash the Bengals.
Goodness, McKinley would be wise to delete all of those tweets immediately if he expects to get a warm welcome from the Cincinnati faithful. You think he’s going to be given free beer or wings during a night out on the town? Once business owners get a look at his social media activity, they might go ahead and start charging him double.
For McKinley, he’s most certainly hoping he get have a much better relationship with the Cincinnati front office than what happened with him in Atlanta. It got to a point where McKinley even blasted the Falcons on Twitter for not trading him. Because of this, no one was shocked when Atlanta decided to release him.
Moving forward, McKinley’s play on Sundays could play a big role on how he gets along with the execs and his teammates. First thing’s first, though: delete those tweets.
