Nelson has spent three seasons with the Bills and is recovering from a torn ACL suffered in Week 1 last year. Though the Buffalo News reported two weeks ago that the team is expected to tender him a contract by the March 15 deadline, Yahoo! Sports’ Jason Cole reported otherwise on Friday.
Here is what Cole reported over Twitter:
Bills not expected to tender RFA WR David Nelson, who missed all but one game last season because of injury. Nelson expected to be healthy.

Nelson, who is active on Twitter and has over 77k followers, was shocked to read the report via Twitter:
Wow. If this is true- then I def do get all my info from twitter.. RT: @jasoncoleyahoo: Bills not expected to tender RFA WR David Nelson

There has been no shortage of this sort of thing happening lately. More and more athletes are on Twitter, which means they have the ability to see what is being said about them.
Even if Nelson is released, he still will get picked up by another team.
