Adam Schefter and Matt Barkley jab each other on Twitter

The Philadelphia Eagles signed fourth-round pick Matt Barkley to a four year contract on Thursday. After being projected to be a top ten (or better) pick if he left USC for the 2012 Draft, Barkley's stock plummeted after a disappointing senior season at USC. ESPN's Adam Schefter reported the signing, with a little dig that the contract wasn't similar to the one Barkley would have signed a year ago. Barkley's response was full of snark and to the point…

Over at Bleacher Report, AA contributor Brad Gagnon raises the possibility that Barkley sending playful jabs to the media could eventually wreck him in an intense, sports-crazy market like Philadelphia. While Barkley's response to Schefty was pretty awesome (especially his lenghty hashtag), if he's sniping back at people for a simple observation like that, Philly sports radio might make him quit social media by September.
