Ex-Miami DL Puts Bounty on FSU RB
[Update: Sileo has, unsurprisingly, been fired from his job.]
Former Miami (FL) defensive lineman Sileo has never shied away from controversy during his second career as a sports radio guy. Yet he might have sunk to a new low with his reaction to Florida State RB Devonta Freeman throwing up a mock “U” during the Seminoles’ 42-14 rout of the Hurricanes on Saturday night.
Following a lot of backlash, Sileo removed the offending tweets above and replaced them with a post suggesting that he was kidding about that whole bounty thing all along.
