According to the Melbourne Police Department in Florida, the SWAT team was dispatched to the home of Keyon Reed, a 26-year-old former college football player who last played for Tennessee Chattanooga in 2012. Why? According to reports, he threatened a number of Dallas Cowboys staffers after he wasn't selected in this past year's NFL Draft.

TMZ reports that Reed also made threats of a sexual nature. His Twitter accounts has also been suspended. TMZ has a screenshot of a tweet that could certainly be perceived as a threat. You can read it below:

"GEttin IMpatient with u mfs @dallascowboys @NFL if Terrell not drafted n Im not the 1st Pick of the Dallas Cowboys. IMMA BLOW THat BITch UP n Ask y i am Mad Ask Coach HUESMAN n SHEILds BITCH ASs..CALL the POLice."

Here's more:

Cops were told Reed "had called members of the Dallas Cowboys and was telling them they needed to sign him. They stated he was making threats to harm people if the Cowboys did not sign him."

When cops arrived to Reed's home, Reed allegedly fessed up to making the threats -- including telling Cowboys employees he was going to "f*** their wife."

Reed reportedly admitted to the cops that he made the threats. But they decided he was not an "imminent threat" and did not arrest him.
