Sometimes, when you're part of a single franchise for long enough, there are certain teams in the league you grow to hate and would never consider playing for, regardless of the money.

This is especially true for division rivals. A Cincinnati Bengal would never want to play for the Pittsburgh Steelers. A Seattle Seahawk couldn't fathom being a San Francisco 49er.

As for ex-New York Giants punter and current free agent Steve Weatherford, there is at least one former division rival he would never play for: the Philadelphia Eagles.

In other words, the Eagles shouldn't waste their time calling him if they ever need a punter.

Hopefully, Weatherford will continue to interact with fans on Twitter in the future, because some of this is just priceless.
