Ex-Cane Dan Sileo deletes bounty-related Florida State tweets

Former Miami defensive lineman Dan Sileo has gotten himself in trouble again, this time in the wake of Florida State's dominating 41-14 win against the Hurricanes on Saturday night.

Sileo did not take kindly to a gesture from one of the Noles, and offered a $1,000 reward for any Miami player to take running back Devonta Freeman out "in six weeks;" referring to the possible rematch against Florida State in the ACC Championship Game. Unfortunately, the picture Sileo included was of defensive tackle Timmy Jernigan, who also wears No. 8.

Sileo deleted the tweets, but TomahawkNation.com saved them and reposted the message on Facebook. According to the 640AM website, Sileo hosts an afternoon show on the station. The former Hurricane was already fired once this year, by WQAM in March, for continued controversies during his time as a radio host.

Sileo later said that the $1,000 offer was a joke, and he apologized on Twitter.
