Are the Bengals trolling their fans about the NFL trade deadline?

Jeremy Hill, George Iloka and Joe Mixon are on the inside of this joke... And we’re all on the outside getting trolled.

NFL: Cincinnati Bengals at Green Bay Packers Jeff Hanisch-USA TODAY Sports

It started this morning.

Jeremy Hill sent out a Tweet with a blushed face emoji.

Fans started wondering... Is Jeremy Hill getting traded?

Then George Iloka Tweeted an eye emoji in response to Hill.

And then Joe Mixon followed.

And then Iloka sent an hourglass.

And I wondered, “what are we waiting for”? Do they know something we don’t know? Or, are these Bengals players just trolling fans making them think something is happening that’s not really happening.

Then the trade deadline came and went and the Bengals did not make a trade. Though, the Bengals ALMOST traded AJ McCarron to the Browns... But failed to due to the Browns’ incompetence.

And then Iloka tweeted, “well this is awkward”.

So, are the Bengals players trolling their fans at the trade deadline?

I think so. How about you?
