Shaun Draughn bleeds only two shades of blue: Giants blue and Tar Heel blue. And he won’t tolerate any suggestions that he might go turncoat for the Blue Devils.
Draughn, 29, a Giants free agent signing, caught some playful heat on social media Wednesday and Thursday after Duke University men’s basketball tweeted a photo from Eli Manning’s offseason workouts showing Draughn, Manning and Giants teammates posing with Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski.
In the photo, Draughn, who played his college football at North Carolina, is wearing a backward blue hat that matches Duke’s royal blue inside Coach K’s blue-and-white colored gym.
“Aye @2ShaunDraughn0, we got to talk man. Blink twice if you’re being held hostage,” tweeted Taylor Vippolis (@tvippolis), a former Carolina receiver and current Tar Heel offensive assistant.
