De’Veon Smith Cut By The Pittsburgh Maulers Over Chicken Salad Incident

This is just bizarre.

RB De'Veon Smith has been cut by the Pittsburgh Maulers over an incident involving chicken salad.

According to Yahoo, he requested pizza from a hotel worker instead of the chicken salad that was being served to him. The hotel worker told him he couldn’t and asked if that would be a problem. He said YES, and walked away.

No big deal, right? Wrong.

A video of him getting cut by head coach Kirby Wilson has hit the internet, in which coach cites a USFL rule that states, "Any disrespect of football or members of staff, USFL, etc. will not be tolerated."

Watch the full video below.

The team did release a statement, which you can read below.

De'Veon retweeted that and wrote, "They really just put out a lie! Y’all really should be ashamed of y’all selves."
