Cleveland Browns waive Jermaine Whitehead following Twitter outburst
Jermaine Whitehead has been waived by the Cleveland Browns following a Twitter outburst from the safety on Sunday.
Threatening tweets were sent from Whitehead's account to several people who criticised his performance in a 24-19 loss to the Denver Broncos.
Cleveland condemned the 26-year-old's "totally unacceptable and highly inappropriate" behaviour and on Monday elected to cut him.
Whitehead made eight appearances in 2019, accumulating 41 tackles and one interception for the 2-6 Browns.
