NFL Deal Leaked During a Call of Duty Game

The NFL rumor mill never stops spinning, and people should always be on the lookout for transfer news and nuggets. Even when they least expect them. 

You might think that you can’t hear anything newsworthy or uncover an NFL transfer nugget while playing video games online. However, one Reddit user can prove you wrong, as that’s exactly what happened when he was playing Call of Duty with people he didn’t even know.

A Deal Being Negotiated in the Background

ProbationOfficer2035 is a Reddit user who was playing Call of Duty – Warzone with complete strangers when he thought he heard a juicy NFL deal being completed in the background.

An avid NFL aficionado and a Packers fan himself, he thought it might be wise to listen in to a conversation that other people would dismiss as irrelevant background noise. 

It turned out that the Packers fan was teamed up with none other than Chicago Bears offensive lineman Rashaad Coward’s wife in Call of Duty – Warzone. Coward’s significant other had left her microphone open while playing the game and it picked up what her husband was saying in the background.

From Chicago to Pittsburgh

As ProbationOfficer2035 wrote in his Reddit post, he could hear that his teammate’s husband was loud in the background. From what he was saying, the Reddit user could make out that he was an NFL player who said that he would love to play in Pittsburgh. The last thing he heard was that if no one called the NFL player in the next thirty minutes, he would sign a 3-year deal to go to Pittsburgh

The Reddit user did some digging after he finished his online gaming session and found that his Call of Duty teammate was wearing Chicago Bears gear in some of her pictures.

He quickly put two and two together and figured that the deal must involve a Chicago Bears’ player that will soon be moving to the Pittsburgh Steelers.

Deal Goes Through

The Reddit user was probably amazed to find out that his theory about what has been happening in the background was right on the money. 

On Monday,  Ian Rapoport from the NFL Network said that Chicago Bears offensive lineman Rashaad Coward was expected to sign with the Pittsburgh Steelers

Coward was a restricted free agent and was not tendered an offer by his former franchise. In other words, he was free to leave and was joining the Steelers. The Reddit user had heard right.
