Statement from @TheRealGresh & @Keefe21 on @Rapsheet hanging up on us to break the Eberflus news

"We respect Ian's decision to put his job as an insider first as there's a drive into deep left field by Castellanos and that'll be a home run. And so that'll make it a 4-0 ballgame"

">WEEI's Gresh and Keefe, Rapoport was audibly shocked by a bit of news that popped up on his phone. Before abruptly hanging up on the show, the NFL insider gave a hilarious parting soundbite. "Oh, s***! I just got a text. I gotta go!" he said. Hosts Andy Gresh and Rich Keefe burst out laughing after Rapoport left the line. Soon after he left the show, he shared this message on Twitter: "Source: The #Bears are working to hire Matt Eberflus as their new head coach." In response to Gresh and Keefe's tweet about the incident, Rapoport shared a couple shrugging emojis.

This moment certainly gave us a hilarious glimpse into life as an NFL insider.
