Jermaine Whitehead is no longer a member of the Cleveland Browns.

The team announced early Monday morning that the safety had been released. The move comes after Whitehead threatened violence against multiple people on Twitter. (SLIDESHOW: These Women On Instagram Hate Wearing Clothes)

Well, there you have it, folks. That didn’t take long at all. I thought he might get suspended or slapped with a fine. (SLIDESHOW: 142 Times Josephine Skriver Barely Wore Anything)

Clearly, the Browns take threats of violence very seriously because Whitehead is now unemployed. If you play stupid games, then you’ll win stupid prizes. (SLIDESHOW: 71 Times Samantha Hoopes Stripped Down)

Hopefully, this serves as a warning to other players on the roster. Stupid tweets and threats of violence will come at a high price. (SLIDESHOW: 60 Times Abigail Ratchford Wore Almost Nothing)

He sent these tweets less than 24 hours ago, and now he’s not on an NFL roster.

Not smart at all, Whitehead. Not smart one bit. The Browns are 2-6, which probably only accelerated their lack of patience with their former safety.

We’ll see if he gets signed elsewhere after these tweets, but I wouldn’t recommend holding your breath.
