New Lions S Jayron Kearse gets into it with Vikings fans following tweet

After spending his first four seasons with the Minnesota Vikings, safety Jayron Kearse is now a member of the Detroit Lions.

Kearse signed a 1-year, $1 million deal with the Lions during the offseason and he hopes to break out after starting just 5 out of 62 games with the Vikings.

On Tuesday, Kearse tweeted that he cannot wait until Week 4 (The Lions play the New Orleans Saints). The tweet was likely in response to Saints QB Drew Brees making some insensitive comments last week.

Following his tweet, plenty of fans, including some Minnesota Vikings fans called out Kearse, reminding him that he plays in Detroit and that he will likely be a special teams player.

Kearse responded by pointing out that Vikings’ fans should be worried about Delvin Cook holding out, rather than worrying about him.
