Falcons to hold McKinley ‘accountable’ for words
Atlanta Falcons interim head coach Raheem Morris plans to hold Takk McKinley accountable for his social media post ripping the team for failing to meet his trade request on Tuesday.
McKinley claimed via Twitter that the Falcons turned down a second-round pick last year and other offers Tuesday from team’s attempting to acquire the defensive end at the trade deadline.
These @AtlantaFalcons turned down a 2nd round draft pick when I requested to get traded last year.
The same @AtlantaFalcons turned down a 5th and 6th round draft pick from multiple teams when I requested to get traded this year. I only have 17.5 career sacks.
