The NFL sent a memo to teams a few weeks back that told teams that they wouldn’t be allowed to post game highlights or gifs of plays to their official social media accounts. However, the league itself continues to put out video highlights of most big plays and touchdowns during the course of every game.
So, the good people that run the Cleveland Browns official Twitter account decided to find a fun way around the new rules after Terrelle Pryor scored a touchdown in the second quarter of the team’s game against the Titans on Sunday.
Immediately following the play, the team account sent out the following tweet.
Nicely done. No official highlights, but you still get the basic idea of what happened on the play. The Browns weren’t the only team to have this idea apparently, as the Eagles social media team followed suit after a Malcolm Jenkins pick six.
Have to applaud the creativity there.
