Former Chicago Bears offensive lineman Rashaad Coward is likely heading to Pittsburgh, and a Reddit user was the first to report the free agency news.
The Reddit user said they’d overheard a conversation via an open microphone during an online “Call of Duty” game called “Warzone,” which features an option to randomly team up with strangers and play together virtually.
“The last thing I heard was that, if no one else calls within the next 30 minutes, he’s gonna sign a 3-year deal in order to facilitate the trade because he would love to be in Pittsburgh,” the user wrote in the post.
Coward’s agent, Brian Adkins, confirmed that Coward’s wife is a gamer on Sunday.
NFL Network insider Ian Rapoport reported on Monday the former Bears OL Rashaad Coward, who is listed as a restricted free agent, is expected to sign with the Steelers.
