Wade Phillips would like football to stop 'Twittering' at him for a roster spot

NEWYou can now listen to Fox News articles!

Those whippersnapper football players just have to learn to stop Twittering at Wade Phillips.

Phillips, the defensive coordinator of the Super Bowl-bound Denver Broncos, made his plea for players to just stop bugging him.

Via Tom Pelissero of USA Today Sports:

This all, of course, stems from desperate free agent-turned Bronco Shiloh Keo, who famously tweeted at Wade Phillips pleading for a chance at a roster spot.

About a week later, Denver signed Keo, and the 28-year-old safety has recorded six tackles and an interception in his five games as a Bronco.

That has inspired several players to tweet at @sonofbum. But guys, just stop. Son of Bum (Wade's father is former NFL coach Bum Phillips. Wade isn't the son of a literal bum) is not going to give you a roster spot.

But if you aren't a free agent football player looking to harass a current defensive coordinator, you should give @sonofbum a follow. His Twitter feed is pure gold.
