Durell Eskridge Announces Return While, Somehow, Avoiding Twitter Jail

Rich Barnes-USA TODAY Sports

The Syracuse football program got a bit of good news Monday, as a key piece of its defense said he would return for his third season.

There was some talks Syracuse Orange sophomore free safety Durell Eskridge was considering bypassing his final two seasons in college and tossing his name into the 2014 NFL Draft. Those talks can now go away, as on Monday the 6-foot-4, 207-pound defensive back announced via Twitter he is coming back next season.

Eskridge made the news official while, somehow, avoiding Twitter jail, as (I believe) he could be setting a record for tweets per second. (Seriously, since writing this piece Eskridge has sent 20 tweets.)

The return of Eskridge will be key for the Orange, who will be losing senior defensive backs Ri'Shard Anderson and Keon Lyn to graduation. The Miami native was arguably Syracuse's most consistent player in the secondary and also caught a pass this year too.

Overall, Eskridge finished the regular season with a team-high 78 tackles (four for a loss) and four interceptions.
