Chiefs DL Shaun Smith threatens reporter via Twitter

USA TODAY Sports

Not satisfied with choking an opposing player this week, Chiefs defensive lineman Shaun Smith decided to take up a Twitter fight with the media.

Kansas City Chiefs defense lineman Shaun Smith was a little grumpy on Sunday. What else could explain his curious decision to blatantly choke a player from the Browns? It was a pretty ugly incident, but Smith didn't stop there. He took his control issues public, blasting members of the media on Twitter following the Chiefs' 30-7 loss to the Cleveland Browns.

It all started because someone dared question his bold prediction prior to the game.

Parkins, a Kansas City radio broadcaster, called him out on it.

Smith blocked Parkins, leaving him with a classy parting shot.

Parkins didn't feel overly threatened.

Smith reportedly told Parkins to "jump off a bridge" as well.

The chocking incident wasn't the first case of Smith introducing some questionable play into his game. In September 2010, he grabbed opponents in the crotch.
