Davone Bess had trouble hanging onto passes this season. It appears he's having trouble deciding what's fair game to broadcast on social media, too.

The Cleveland Browns wide receiver used his official Twitter account with a post headlined, "We da real dons!" and a photo of a substance that could be marijuana. The team and possibly the NFL, according to the Cleveland Plain Dealer, are expected to look into the matter.

Bess appears to have had a full day planned. He had the unknown green substance, an oddly shaped cigar that could have contained such substance, a mixed drink in a glass that might have been a wedding favor ("Ang and Will, 11/10/2012" — and all our best to them, of course), an iPhone with a Rastafarian "Jah" screensaver, a 5-hour Energy drink and a TV documentary about one of the more ruthless women in drug-cartel history, Griselda Blanco. Nothing like curling up on the couch and kicking the feet up.

But did it need to be sent out to his 31,500 followers (and, transitively, to many of theirs, too)? The photo was tweeted out at 6:20 a.m. on Thursday from Plantation, Fla.

Bess was traded from the Miami Dolphins to the Browns in a deal involving a swap of draft picks. He caught 42 passes, 362 yards and two touchdowns in his first season in Cleveland and left the team for personal reasons and was placed on the non-football/reserve list for the final two games of the season.
