Friends, teammates and other NFL players have encounters on social media on a daily basis. On Monday, a few Buffalo Bills had some words for each other on Twitter and Instagram that had quite a few people scratching their heads while trying to decode what the significance was of it all.
The first was early in the evening with LeSean McCoy commenting on Tre’Davious White’s recent post on Instagram where he was hanging out with friends from his hometown.
Not sure there’s anything behind it, but Tre White has removed all #Bills pictures from his Instagram account.— Bradley Gelber (@BradleyGelber) January 8, 2019

As noted above, Tre White has removed all of his pictures affiliated with the Bills on his Instagram except for the one he posted after he was selected by the Bills in the 2017 NFL Draft. According to some eagle-eyed social media followers, White did the same thing last off-season to show himself he has to prove it every year.
During the college football National Championship game, McCoy tweeted that he wanted to get Alabama offensive linemen blocking for him. He quickly deleted the tweet but you know we were going to grab the screenshot. It was also noticed that McCoy had commented on an NFL video on Instagram of Indianapolis Colts star guard, Quenton Nelson, where McCoy pleaded to have a lineman like him. Both of those encounters are below.

We also saw a cryptic tweet from Bills’ left tackle Dion Dawkins about being comfortable. Maybe after a shaky second season he's worried about losing the job as the left tackle to someone else? Who knows. But McCoy also had some words for Dawkins that didn't even seem to correlate with what Dawkins had said.
Thank you lil bro— Lesean McCoy (@CutonDime25) January 8, 2019
All in all, it was a weird series of events for these three players and their fans watching it all unfold, whatever that was.
It’s certainly strange for the captain of a team to publicly say the guys around him aren’t good enough. Just because we all probably agree, doesn’t make the decision to take it to Twitter any better.
