It has been an eventful few days for Efe Obada.
The Carolina Panthers were first NFL team to announce their final 53-man roster on Saturday, and the versatile defensive lineman had made it.
On Sunday, he tweeted his happiness at the decision. But a few hours later, he was one of three players waived after the Panthers claimed as many players off waivers.
And then, following the decision to place cornerback Eli Apple on injured reserve, Obada was back on the team.
And after laughing (and crying) at his original tweet, Obada showed his sense of humour by tweeting a picture of an Uno reverse card.

The fan-favourite defensive end saw the funny side after his selection was short lived
Obada has made himself at home in Carolina, endearing himself to team-mates and fans alike.
Last month, new head coach Matt Rhule praised the 28-year-old for his work ethic and for his ability to put on 10lbs in the offseason. The 6ft 6in Obada now weighs a fearsome 19-and-a-half stone.
'He's a really good player. We're trying to carve out and find a great roel for him where he can make an impact on the game. He's the kind of guy that makes you have a good defense.'
