For offering this honest assessment of his teammate Rashard Mendenhall’s tweeted 9/11 trutherism (via PFT):

I was not only disappointed but surprised when I saw Mendenhall’s meanderings. I considered him a smart, well-spoken young man — certainly compared with most NFL players.

In the early Twitter stages (some of which tweets have now been removed.) of his non-apology for this nonsense, Mendenhall urged his Twitter followers to “THINK.” Might I suggest he READ MORE WIDELY?
