Twitter page might have prompted Chargers to clip Byrd’s wings

So why did the Chargers cut receiver Demetrius Byrd? We assumed it had a lot to do with his recovery, or lack thereof, from last year’s auto accident.

But then a reader sent a link to Byrd’s Twitter page.

Here’s one of the entries: “Hey twitt fam is it gay to like justin bieber? Cuz I’m not gay but I’m feelin dat baby sng dat shit rockin right now on my cd also.”

It was made earlier today. The same day the Chargers cut him.

Given that San Diego fined former cornerback Antonio Cromartie for complaining via Twitter regarding training camp cuisine, it wouldn’t surprise us to learn that, once the Chargers say the Justin Bieber tweet, they decided that it was time to move on.
