REPORT: Brock Osweiler Was "Held Hostage" After Refusing To Face Tennessee Titans
Remember back when Brock Osweiler was benched last year for being the worst at everything, ever? Then (in a preview of years to come) backup Tom Savage got a concussion in their week 17 beatdown by the Titans?
Brock finished the game with all of the gutsy championship mentality that ends up in your team having to package a 2nd round pick just to get you out of town.
Well check out this gem from PFT:
Per a source with knowledge of the situation, Savage became very upset, knocking things around in the locker room and otherwise making a ruckus about having his status jeopardized by a doctor’s decision to keep him from playing. At or about the same time, coach Bill O’Brien informed Osweiler that he’d be finishing the game.
Osweiler, per the source, reacted negatively, telling O’Brien in the visiting coach’s office at Nissan Stadium in Nashville that he’s only playing Osweiler because O’Brien needs him. [Editor’s note: That’s sort of how football depth charts work.] An argument ensued, voices were raised. At one point, it’s believed that Osweiler got up to walk away and O’Brien threw out an arm to stop him. That prompted Osweiler to act as if he were being “held hostage,” a claim that he would repeat (per the source) in the days after the game.
That's right folks: Brock robbed the Texans for $16 Million last year, then had a diva meltdown when asked to play football.
I mean, at least when VY flipped out it was because he lost or got benched.
I would have killed to see JJ Watt be in the locker room for this incident. Alas, reports are that he was busy faking an injury so he could start building Trump's border wall with his bare hands.
