The Cleveland Browns released starting safety Jermaine Whitehead on Monday, one day after he posted a series of threatening remarks on social media following the team’s 24-19 loss in Denver.
“Imma kill you b—- … that’s on blood,” Whitehead wrote to one Twitter user.
“Don’t get shot at lil b—- … can you whoop my a– … f— football … let me know when you need the address,” he tweeted to another.
Whitehead, who missed tackles on two big plays by the Broncos, also threatened Dustin Fox for criticizing his tackling. Fox works for the team’s radio network.
“Come get it in blood b—- made lil a– boy,” he tweeted to Fox. “I’m out there with a broke hand … don’t get smoked f— a– cracker.”
On Sunday night, the Browns issued a statement calling Whitehead’s comments “totally unacceptable and highly inappropriate.” By Monday morning, Whitehead was off the team.
Whitehead, 26, had 41 tackles and one interception in eight starts this season.
Undrafted out of Auburn in 2015, he played in 19 games with the Green Bay from 2016-18. The Browns acquired him off waivers from the Packers last November.
