Most April Fools' Day jokes are about the same. Replace the sugar with salt. If you have the platform, trick fans into thinking you signed with an NFL team . Harmless stuff.  Joking about getting a DUI? Probably under the category of "Oh what in the heck are you possibly thinking?"  Seattle Seahawks outside linebacker thought it would be funny to announce on Twitter that he got a DUI. He didn't, it was just a joke. April Fools! Ugh.  Before this hits the media I just wanna apologize to my fans and the @Seahawks organization once again. I made a terrible decision b driving — Bruce Irvin (@BIrvin_WVU11) April 1, 2015 After I had a few drinks. I will do everything to get ur trust back and will become a better person after this. — Bruce Irvin (@BIrvin_WVU11) April 1, 2015 Irvin let that linger on Twitter for about 25 minutes before springing the joke. How many of yall thought I was serious ?! Haha April fools!!! — Bruce Irvin (@BIrvin_WVU11) April 1, 2015 Now, at some point it probably should have occurred to Irvin that this wasn't too funny. It might have been even more regrettable given Irvin's past. He was arrested twice before he was drafted in the first round of the 2012 draft by the Seahawks, including once for breaking into a drug dealer's house. This was just a joke gone wrong, but it's probably not such a minor thing to any families who have been affected by an accident involving a drunk driver. It's hard to believe Irvin meant any harm, but he heard about it. Ok it was a joke didn't meant to disrespect anybody. Damn relax — Bruce Irvin (@BIrvin_WVU11) April 1, 2015 And then Irvin apologized, kind of, and then said he was done on Twitter the rest of April 1. I apologize to all the 12's and my wvu fam if I offended u didn't mean to at all. So yea that's pretty much all the people that matter. — Bruce Irvin (@BIrvin_WVU11) April 1, 2015 I'm banning myself from Twitter the rest of day. U trolls have fun killing my mentions i got work to do — Bruce Irvin (@BIrvin_WVU11) April 1, 2015 So, keep in mind to keep the April Fools' Day jokes to something petty, instead of making them about committing major crimes. - - - - - - - Frank Schwab is the editor of Shutdown Corner on Yahoo Sports.

Free-agent wide receiver Greg Jennings, who was released by the Minnesota Vikings last month, teased his loyal followers (328,000+ strong) and fans with a few social-media bombs Tuesday night, hinting at a new NFL destination. Really glad to be wrapping this #FreeAgency process up! Glad it's coming to an end. — Greg Jennings (@GregJennings) March 31, 2015 This got people a bit fired up. The Miami Dolphins were mentioned as a possible landing spot, given Joe Philbin's connection to Jennings from their Green Bay days together. Jennings met with the Carolina Panthers recently, a seemingly nice match of need and talent. Seattle Seahawks faithful imagined the charismatic Jennings joining a cast of undrafted wide receivers and acting as consigliere to the group. A possible return to the Packers? Jennings said previously he'd be more than open to the idea, hinting at regret at how he left the team in the first place. The possibilities were rife. Jennings kept the anticipation at a fever pitch with a series of tweets late Tuesday night. Done deal! — Greg Jennings (@GregJennings) March 31, 2015 Has there ever been a professional athlete break the news of where he's signing via social media? — Greg Jennings (@GregJennings) April 1, 2015 But certainly in this day and age of social media and round-the-clock NFL coverage, someone was going to get this scoop first, right? After all, this is a receiver who was due to make $9 million this season before being cut with more than 8,000 receiving yards, good for 15th among active wide receivers . Not exactly bottom-of-the-roster fodder we're talking about. Jennings apparently wanted to keep the news very closely guarded.  Attention media outlets and NFL insiders: There will be no leaks inside the Jennings camp! You will all find out the same time as the fans! — Greg Jennings (@GregJennings) April 1, 2015 There was even talk on Jennings' Twitter feed of DMing one lucky follower his next destination — a cute idea if we ever heard one. People were grasping at straws — just give us something, Greg! Then he said he's make the announcement public late Tuesday night, and everyone would find out at the same time. Attention media outlets and NFL insiders: There will be no leaks inside the Jennings camp! You will all find out the same time as the fans! — Greg Jennings (@GregJennings) April 1, 2015 Tonight 10 PM PST. — Greg Jennings (@GregJennings) April 1, 2015 There was even a countdown ... 30 minutes... — Greg Jennings (@GregJennings) April 1, 2015 15 minutes... — Greg Jennings (@GregJennings) April 1, 2015 Jennings then said he'd link to Sqor, the athlete-fan connecting site backed by old teammate Brett Favre, on Twitter. And that's when he laid it on us: After much discussion, I've decided that this fall I'm taking my talents to... https://t.co/VXmkwLyBiu — Greg Jennings (@GregJennings) April 1, 2015 Did you click? The page is blank. #savedyouaclick  We appreciate Jennings' gallows humor here in his time of uncertainty. And we're pretty sure he'll find a landing spot soon. We also are a fan of solid April Fools humor. This certainly qualifies, with Jennings perhaps making a subtle nod to fans' obsession with the 24-7-365 NFL news cycle and we media who seek to scratch that itch for them. Well played. Now go find a good team to sign with, and wait until after April 1 to do so, so that we know it's legit, please. - - - - - - - Eric Edholm is a writer for Shutdown Corner on Yahoo Sports. Have a tip?

A hot take on the Carolina Panthers from my son's elementary school newspaper. pic.twitter.com/uxzeurkcIl — Jeff Atkins (@atkinsjeff) March 30, 2015 In some respects, the Carolina Panthers had a successful 2014 campaign. They won their division, made the playoffs and even won a wild-card weekend game against the Arizona Cardinals before losing to the then-defending Super Bowl champion Seattle Seahawks. Cleveland Browns fans pray for such a season. But one elementary school student isn't buying that hype. Not by any stretch of the child's imagination. In a piece penned for a grade-school newspaper and shared by Virginia-based Ph.D. student Jeff Atkins on Twitter, a young NFL observer sums up the Panthers' problems better than most football scribes could. My favorite football team is the Carolina Panthers. I feel that they need a better quarterback. The quarterback is Cam Newton. The team never seems to win and I think he is the reason. He gets intercepted a lot. Now I know what you are thinking. What if he does not have the support from his team? What if they are not very good? Maybe ... but, the players on the team are pretty good. I will admit that maybe the team is responsible for some of the losses, but most of the time it is his fault. There is a spot for him on the team. That is as a running back. That would probably use his talents better. Now that I think about it ... the Panthers were never a very good team. Maybe he is not the only bad player. Spot on, young man. Newton's quarterback rating of 82.1 ranked 26th in a league with only 32 teams, and his backup Derek Anderson finished 2-0 in his absence this season. Then again, Newton faced an uphill battle against injuries, a subpar receiving corps and a defense that allowed 23.4 points per game. So, while the Panthers indeed "were never a very good team," this kid probably wasn't too thrilled to hear the Carolina brass is  reportedly considering signing Newton to an expensive contract extension. This little dude's stream-of-consciousness writing style is one we should all consider adopting — beginning with one hot sports take before thinking it through and concluding with an even hotter one. Like, "Roger Goodell's response to the Ray Rice issue wasn't great. Now that I think about it ... his responses to most issues aren't great. Maybe he is not the best commissioner." Or, "Tim Tebow deserves another NFL chance. Now that I think about it ... He's gotten plenty. Maybe he isn't that good." But really I'm really just hoping this article was written by the same kid from that "Play 60" commercial. (h/t Deadspin )Yahoo Sports - NFL - Seattle Seahawks News

Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson spent Saturday at spring training with the Texas Rangers, hitting a home run in batting practice and drawing on his recent Super Bowl experience to deliver a message to the team. A former minor league infielder for Colorado, Wilson was later acquired by the Rangers and practiced with them last year. ''I think I'm better in baseball than football,'' Wilson said, breaking into a laugh. Wilson took out the lineup card before Texas played San Diego, but wasn't going to get into the game.Yahoo Sports - NFL - Seattle Seahawks News

Mike Krzyzewski and Duke are one win away from getting back to the NCAA Final Four, this time with a talented group of freshmen. Justise Winslow, the freshman from Houston playing at home the day after his 19th birthday, had 21 points and 10 rebounds for the South Regional's top-seeded Blue Devils in their 63-57 Sweet 16 victory over revived Utah on Friday night. The last Final Four appearance was in 2010, when the Blue Devils also went through Houston on way to their fourth national title. SYRACUSE, N.Y. (AP) - Denzel Valentine scored 13 of his 18 points in the second half to lead Michigan State to a 62-58 win over Oklahoma in an NCAA Tournament East Regional semifinal on Friday night.Yahoo Sports - NFL - Seattle Seahawks News
