Racist Tweets From Top Prospect Surface Within A Day Of NFL Draft

Racist Tweets From Top Prospect Surface Within A Day Of NFL Draft

It allows the teams to conduct more research, to speak directly to Allen about the tweets, to spend time trying to figure out who leaked the information and why, and ultimately to decide whether to take him off the draft board or to lower his position on it. I don't want that to be the impression of who I am, because that is not me. They included several posts with a racial slur towards African-Americans.

On ESPN's First Take on Thursday, NFL Insider Adam Schefter reported that his sources indicated Allen's Twitter account was vetted in January and that the offensive tweets were removed then.

According to ESPN, Allen apologized for the tweets and told ESPN's Stephen A. Smith late Wednesday night that he was young and dumb when he wrote the tweets while attending Firebaugh High School, about 40 miles west of Fresno, California.

In one now-deleted message, Allen joked "If it ain't white, it ain't right!" which he would later attribute to the television show "Modern Family". "My agency went over any past social media, and these didn't come up after I did the search".

O'Neill read Cosby's testimony to jurors for almost three hours Wednesday evening. That testimony will be read to the jury Thursday morning by the court reporter.

The Giants hold the No. 2 overall pick in Thursday's draft.

With each National Football League organisation staking their hopes on a certain amount of known and unknown details, the incident sparked an immediate apology from Allen, keen no doubt to halt the swell of negativity surrounding this eleventh-hour revelation.

"I would love to have that pressure on my shoulders because I've always thrived in those situations, and I feel like Cleveland would be a great spot to be", said Allen. "Whatever team picks me, they are going to get that from me".
