Curt Schilling could cost himself induction, at least via the writers, with his Twitter account. It won’t get that bad for Jones, who looks like a first-ballot selection no matter what. But a few writers could ding him when he becomes eligible for his past tweets. Even before social media, as well, there were a few hints that Jones could lose Hall of Fame votes. For one thing, longtime Atlanta Journal-Constitution sports editor Furman Bisher wrote in 2010 that Jones might not be worth a first-ballot vote because he fell short of 500 home runs. It’s weird logic, but some people ascribe to it.
Seahawks punter Jon Ryan had a close relationship with kicker Stephen Hauschka in Seattle.
So Ryan can probably get away with the funny Twitter message he posted after news broke Thursday that Hauschka had signed a four-year, $12.4 million contract with the Bills.
“It’s been an honor to hold your balls for the last 6 years @StevenHauschka,” he wrote. “Good luck in Buffalo unless you play us then I hope you suck.”

A 2016 Pro Bowl alternate, Hauschka has been one of the most sure-footed kickers in the NFL since joining the Seahawks in 2011. Hauschka has made 175 of 197 field-goal attempts (88.8 percent), including an 89.1 field-goal completion percentage in 2016, when he made 33 of 37 field goal attempts.
