HOUSTON — The day before the 2022 NFL Draft began, Texan’s Larmy Tunsell tweeted that he overturned his nightly draft incident by minting a non-fungible token (NFT) from his “infamous gas mask video.”
Just before the draft began in 2016, a video of him smoking marijuana from a gas mask was posted on his Twitter account. Tunsil, who was expected to be the best offensive tackle for the draft, slipped off the draft board and was eventually drafted by the Miami Dolphins with the thirteenth pick.
Tunnel later told then-NFL Network analyst Deion Sanders that his Twitter account had been hacked.
“Man, it was a mistake,” Tunnel said at the time. “You know, this happened years ago. Like I said before, someone hacked my Twitter account. That’s it, man. It’s just a crazy world — things happen for a reason.”
Tonsil chirp That a portion of 1 in 1 NFT’s proceeds will benefit the Last Prisoner Project, which supports those imprisoned for cannabis offenses.
“I am looking forward and excited about the future, and I am grateful to all those who supported me on my enlistment night and those who gave and will continue to support my journey!” Tonsil tweeted.
Tunsil was traded to the Houston Texans in August 2019 for a package that included two first-round picks. In 2020 he signed a three-year, $66 million extension with Texas that included a guaranteed $50 million.
