Former Pittsburgh Steelers running back Chris Rainey is still not happy about his recent release from the Indianapolis Colts and he’s doing his best to burn bridges with his former team on Twitter in the process.
“Yea I’m piss watching the colts game when I should be out there, too. Even tho i didn’t break no f—– team rules, not even,” Rainey tweeted Thursday night.
Rainey, who was released by the Colts in late July for reportedly violating team rules, also revealed Thursday night that him playing around with a fire extinguisher might have been what led to him getting his walking papers.
After Colts running back Daniel “Boom” Herron caught a 12-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Matt Hasselbeck in the second quarter of the preseason game against the New York Jets, Rainey let loose with another rant and called out his former teammate as being an accomplice of his.
“Nice TD Boom even tho u was in the hallway with me that nite when we was horsing around with the fire extinguisher. Man up like I did,” Rainey tweeted.
Rainey would later delete both of those tweets, but there are plenty of people who got screenshots of them before that happened.
I was surprised that the Steelers former fifth-round draft pick was even able to get the Colts to give him a shot. Now, you have to think he’s done for good in the NFL. Stranger things have happened, however, but at that rate that Rainey’s burning bridges, there’s not enough fire extinguishers in the world to put out those blazes.
