Another sordid NFL love triangle????
(New York Post) NEW YORK – Is this the latest in saucy NFL love triangles?
A tweet reportedly sent out early Monday morning by Detroit Lions tight end Joseph Fauria — then quickly deleted, in that telltale sign of guilt — suggested some unsportsmanlike conduct between his girlfriend, Erika Hammond, and Seattle Seahawks quarterback Russell Wilson.
Hey @DangeRussWilson enjoy her @ErikaAnnHammond. She had me thinking she was a loyal GF. I almost feel for you.

The last line is a reference to the scandal swirling around Dallas Cowboys running back DeMarco Murray, accused by former college teammate Brennan Clay of sleeping with Clay’s wife. Last week, Clay posted alleged sexts between Murray and wife Gina D’Agostini, from whom Clay is filing for divorce.
Clay responded to Fauria on Twitter:
@BigJoeFauria @DangeRussWilson @ErikaAnnHammond
SWERVE ON THESE …..well you know..
Of course, Fauria has earned a reputation as a certified football goof. In addition to the increasing absurdity of his touchdown celebrations, the 6-foot-7 Fauria has a finely tuned social media sensibility — witness this adorable tripped-over-the-dog injury alibi — and might be looking to add pot-stirring hoaxer to his resume.
Just Sunday, Hammond — a former WWE Diva-in-training — proudly re-tweeted a video of Fauria’s latest post-TD antics.
And let’s try to close the loop on these Sunday soap operas. Wilson also has been mentioned in the NFL’s most pernicious ongoing rumor: That his ex-wife Ashton Meem had an affair with Wilson’s former Seahawks teammate Golden Tate, who now suits up for … the Lions, alongside Fauria.
