As always, when news of NFL signing and trades is afoot, the pranksters crop up to trip up the rubes. One of the Twitter accounts most effective at this is @AdarnSchefter. And while fooling the average fan is unfortunate, it’s all worth it when one of these accounts uses a fake scoop to sucker veteran football writers such as Eagles writer Les Bowen and KSK fave Peter King.
My apologies. Fake Schefter. My bad.
