About a month ago, Pro Football Talk’s Mike Florio took a jab at Packers practice squad quarterback Kurt Benkert on Twitter. Benkert fired back in the most witty of ways, leading to a social media battle. Last night, a Tweet made by Pro Football Talk reignited the social media feud:
The quoted Tweet by Kurt Benkert was a joke about a speech made by President Joe Biden. In response to the Tweet, Benkert returned with the following:
He also clarified the joke:
A New Player in the Battle
For some reason, Charles Robinson of Yahoo Sports decided to enter the playing field, too.
And of course, Benkert was not backing down:
Moral of the story: do not mess with Kurt Benkert on Twitter. It may also be unwise to mess with Benkert on a Bye Week. Listen, he may not be on the active roster, but Benkert is such a fun personality to have with the team. In addition to being a great teammate, he boosts local businesses and interacts with fans on social media. No one has had a bad interaction with him [excluding Florio and Robinson]. Here’s hoping the Packers keep him around for a while.
