Top 20 Tweets Dropping F-Bombs & More on Brock Osweiler for Houston Move

After Broncos quarterback Brock Osweiler signed a four-year, $72 million contract to play for the Houston Texans, featuring a $37 million guarantee (Denver offered him four years for $64 million, with $30 million guaranteed), it became clear that fans had underestimated how pissed off he was to be benched in favor of Peyton Manning in the last game of the 2015-2016 season — and to be stuck watching the run to the Super Bowl on the bench.

Either that or he really needed that extra $7 million — especially since he'll be collecting it in Texas, which has no state income tax.

Whatever the case, Broncos lovers on Twitter reacted with anger at his decision — and also with obscenities aplenty. F-bombs were hardly the only explosive terms dropped on the Brockweiler after the news broke.

Look below to count down the twenty most memorably profane tweets we found, supplemented by some reassuring words (and a parting shot) from Broncos general manager John Elway.
