Perched on the edge of their tweets

Yes, NFL free agency has come to this: reading between the tweets.

Brandon Mebane, free-agent defensive tackle for the Seattle Seahawks, posted and then deleted from his timeline a tweet reading, "I pray I made the right choice."

Mebane, reacting to the stir he had created as fans wondered whether he had chosen to re-sign with Seattle or bolt for another team, possibly Denver, then followed up with, "Lighten up! I just picked up a DVD!!!!"

Sounds to me like a decision is near, but not quite final. Otherwise, why delete the tweet?

By the way: Lee Rasizer, longtime Broncos beat reporter, suggests the Broncos aren't likely to make room for Mebane from a financial standpoint.

Stay tuned.
