Taylor Decker Ezekiel Elliott Darren Rovell tweet

Criticizing ESPN’s Darren Rovell on Twitter is a common theme, but it’s interesting to see athletes get in on it. Detroit Lions’ left tackle Taylor Decker did so Tuesday, and the criticisms he lobbed at Rovell were well-deserved.

Decker went after Rovell after the ESPN reporter conveniently left his name out of a tweet, a rather dumb tweet that suggested Decker was more happy to receive an opponent’s jersey than upset about his team’s loss. The tweet in question was about Decker swapping jerseys with former Ohio State teammate Ezekiel Elliott after the Lions-Cowboys game Monday night.
