Danny Amendola, a two-time Super Bowl champion with the New England Patriots, announced his retirement Monday after a 13-year career as a wide receiver.
Somehow, Adam Schefter fumbled this announcement and tried desperately to delete his mistake.
The ESPN NFL news breaker seemingly got caught submitting one of his “scoops” for approval to its source before publishing it. At the top of the announcement, he wrote “Work?”
It only took him seconds to see the mistake, delete it, and post it again.
Twitter users saw what he wrote and called him out on it:
Back in 2021, Schefter got exposed when it was revealed he had addressed former Commanders, general manager, Bruce Allen as “Mr. Editor” in an email exchange while seeking Allen’s approval on a story.
Schefter also caught major hell in his reporting on a domestic violence story involving Vikings running back Dalvin Cook, as well as poor phrasing in tweets about the death of former Steelers quarterback Dwayne Haskins.
It’s been one hell of a year for Schefter.
As far as Amendola goes, he came into the league as an undrafted free agent when he latched on with the St. Louis Rams in 2009. He played four years with the Rams before joining the Patriots and helped the team win two championships with Tom Brady, Rob Gronkowski and Julian Edelman.
He would bounce around from 2018 to 2021, playing for the Miami Dolphins, Detroit Lions, and Houston Texans before deciding to call it a career this week.WANT MORE FROM TOTALPROSPORTS? FOLLOW US ON GOOGLE NEWS.
