Probation described the unlikely event on the official NFL reddit, saying that their teammate “had her mic on and I could hear her husband talking in the background about a ‘deal.'” Turns out, that “deal” was Coward’s now-confirmed move to the Pittsburgh Steelers. “The last thing I heard was that if no one else calls within the next 30 minutes he’s gonna sign a 3-year deal in order to facilitate the trade because he would love to be in Pittsburgh.”

“Shout out to the Bears. It is what it is. We had a great time here and we’re moving on. Steelers nation.” Coward is also retweeting people making light of the accidental Warzone leak, so it seems like he’s being a good sport about it, too. He also seems pretty excited to be a Steeler, which I can understand given that black and gold is objectively cooler than the Bears’ blue and orange. (Sorry, I don’t make the rules.)
Moral of the story: turn on push-to-talk and don’t broadcast conversations with sensitive information to a random handful of Warzone players. It might end up on Reddit. Whether it be chatter about your multi-million dollar contract or what kind of burger you want from McDonald’s, we are listening.
