After being released by the Cleveland Browns on Saturday, safety Donte Whitner ripped his former team and front office. The ten-year veteran is a three-time Pro Bowler finished with 81 combined tackles and 1.5 sacks in 2015. Soon after his release, Whitner tweeted out this:
Whitner went after the team’s chief strategy officer Paul DePodesta, who was an MLB executive and part of the Oakland A’s “Moneyball” era. DePodesta was hired by the Browns in January without any prior football experience.
A later tweet from Whitner expressed his frustration of being released weeks ago when free agency began. It appears the Browns are rebuilding yet again and veteran players are being replaced with younger guys.
