Yep - when you go to his twitter site this message appears
Sorry, that page doesn’t exist!
Thanks for noticing—we're going to fix it up and have things back to normal soon.
I will say that I went to the guy's Twitter and saw a later tweet in response to someone calling him out for the tweet. He said, "I'm for Sam I'm not for ESPN telling me he's gay."
There's two ways we can interpret that, but my gut reaction is that he disliked the idea of homosexuality having to be such a big deal, instead of letting the guy just play football.
That said, his deletion of his Twitter tells me the other interpretation might be more accurate.
