A first version of the tweet was deleted by Schefter after it seemed to include a stray question at the top: Work? Was Schefter copying and pasting communication from Danny Amendola or his representatives?”

The social media community quickly reacted to the veteran NFL reporter’s posting, and users jokingly granted him permission to post his work in response.

It was discovered last year that he had sent correspondence to former Washington general manager Bruce Allen calling him “Mr. Editor” and seeking his approval.

The week before the start of the NFL training camps, Amendola, formerly a wide receiver for the Lions, announced his retirement from the sport.

There were two seasons in which Amendola played in Detroit (2019-2020). There are 108 receptions that he has collected during his 29 games played in Detroit.

When the veteran wide receiver left Detroit, he joined the Houston Texans, where he played in eight games before he was placed on the injured reserve list at the end of the 2021 season.
