According to the Sacramento Bee, Akers decided enough was enough after receiving a death threat.
Kicker David Akers, who has struggled in recent games, re-tweeted this message around 7 p.m. Wednesday: RT @RIP_FreeLaddin YOU F—-OT IF YOU MISS ONE MORE FIELD GOAL YOU ABOUT TO GET YOUR ENTIRE LIFE ENDED. Akers appears to have disabled his Twitter account, @DavidAkers2, shortly thereafter.
I think that people need to get checked. These death threats are complete horsesh*t. Twitter should be a way for players to reach out to their fans in a positive way, not for jackasses to send out crazy sh*t like this.
