Lots of strange things can happen on Twitter. You could connect with a celebrity you'd never meet in real life. You might even go unintentionally viral for something. And apparently, you can get help shipping a player on your local NFL team out of your city.

One likely Washington Redskins' fan apparently has had enough of former first-round pick Josh Doctson. So much so that Twitter user @HilareeBanks asked if "we can get Doctson outta D.C. now?"

Then, seemingly out of no where, American moving equipment and storage rental company, U-Haul, offered to help.

While Doctson hasn't lived up to the first-round pick the Redskins spent on him in 2016, he hasn't been all that bad in Washington, tallying a career-high 532 receiving yards in 15 games last season. Plus, he was without starting QB Alex Smith for much of the 2018 season, after a possible career-ending leg injury.

Maybe new Redskins' QB Dwayne Haskins will help turn Doctson's NFL career around. Otherwise, he might really need a U-Haul when his contract is up after the 2019 NFL season.
