Antonio Brown commented on the post with a “100” emoji. 

-- The Browns waived Jermaine Whitehead on Monday morning after he posted threatening tweets following the team’s loss to the Broncos. 

It started when former NFL player Dustin Fox, who appears on a postgame show for the Browns' radio network, tweeted a criticism about Whitehead’s play in the game and Whitehead responded with a profanity-laced tweet. 

"Come get it in blood b---- made ass lil boy. I'm out there with a broke hand .. don't get smoked ... " he wrote. 

Whitehead then followed up with, "Imma kill you b----.. that's on blood" to another person on Twitter who called him a “f--- boy.”

His account was suspended so he took to Instagram to apologize. 

"Crazy world. They line it up and say anything in the book too you," he said in the caption of a photo of himself walking outside with a suitcase in his right hand and a cast on the left one, which has since been deleted. "They tell you take the high road, when yo whole life you was taught to meet fire with fire. I do apologize for my performance, but having a broke hand and a strong fear of letting my team down is my downfall. Whatever happens happens. Ain trippin. They probably gone still talk crazy but this me getting smoke off my chest. I don't need one like.. this from me to me! Keep ya head up homie, can't nobody f--- with you. I dare em to try."

In a statement on Sunday night, a spokesperson for the Browns said, "Jermaine Whitehead's social media posts following today's game were totally unacceptable and highly inappropriate."

QUOTE OF THE DAY: “We had our moments. But in the end they did more than we did. We just have to do a better job. It’s not any one thing or any one play or player or scheme or anything. We have to coach better and play better.” -- Bill Belichick, to OMF, on the Patriots’ loss to the Ravens on Sunday
