Bengals' Whitworth posts tweet about Mike Brown, said wife did it
A message criticizing
"Mike Brown told me I'm done here," the tweet read. "Said I can play this year and go home. So I told him I want a raise or I'll sit my a-- at home this …"
Moments after the tweet hit the social media site it was deleted. After deactivating his Twitter account, Whitworth logged back on but made his account private.
Whitworth told ESPN that the tweet originated from his wife, who was trying to send a private message to a teammate for him. Whitworth said his wife is upset over the ordeal but downplayed the message as more of a joke.
Whitworth is entering the final year of his contract.
Former Ravens safety Ed Reed to officially retire on Thursday
Reed, a first-round selection in 2002 by the Ravens, went on to have one of the more remarkable careers for a safety. Reed made the Pro Bowl nine times, was named an All-Pro eight times and was the AP NFL Defensive Player of the Year in 2004.
In 2012, his last season with the Ravens, he was a part of the team that went on to win Super Bowl XLVII.
During his career, Reed recorded 643 total tackles and 64 interceptions. NFL coaches and players have referred to Reed as one of the greatest safeties to ever play the game.
He last season in the league was in 2013, when he spent time with both the Texans and Jets. He did not sign to a team in 2014.
Reed will now likely be inducted into the Ravens' Ring of Honor this season. Ravens team president Dick Cass previously said it would be ideal for this to happen in the franchise's 20th year.
"He belongs there, obviously," Cass said back in March, via The Baltimore Sun. "Our fans would love to see him. We would love to do it this year, but in some sense, it’s in his court. He knows that we want him in our Ring of Honor.”

Colts WR T.Y. Hilton not thrilled over drafting of Phillip Dorsett
But what Dorsett could prove to be is insurance in case Hilton leaves. The young veteran is approaching his contract year.
"There's nothing I can do about that," Hilton told the Indianapolis Star. "That's who they picked. That's cool with me." Hilton went on to talk about his "battle" and "competition" with Dorsett.
Dorsett is certainly no immediate threat to Hilton in regard to playing time. The latter racked up a career-high 1,345 yards in receiving a year ago with seven touchdowns.
Broncos NT Sylvester Williams working to improve game
Williams has been working toward accomplishing those goals. He stayed in the area during the offseason to better his game and remain in peak shape. He has emphasized diet and shedding body fat as well as film study in an attempt to learn of areas in his game that require improvement.
"I already went into this offseason with a lot of motivation from within," he told the Denver Post. "I put a lot on myself to get stronger this year and come back with a better year."
Williams started 13 games last year and contributed to 21 tackles.

Disgruntled Seahawks DE Michael Bennett unlikely to be dealt
"He's kinda sorta tried to say that he didn't really want to be dealt after all, but that's not flying anywhere," La Canfora wrote. "He and his agent have made it clear he'd rather not be back in Seattle and while the Seahawks aren't ones to back down, perhaps something emerges that makes sense for all parties prior to the start of the regular season.
"Kind of odd not to be so happy in a franchise that competes for the Lombardi Trophy, and until or unless the Seahaws put out explicit word that Bennett has permission to speak to other teams, I don't see any clubs nibbling in this era of hyper-sensitivity over tampering regulations. But there's a lot of time between now and September for something to perhaps change."
Bennett contributed to 38 tackles a year ago and added seven sacks.
