When these two meet, paranoia can run high. And so when Jets safety Kerry Rhodes and tight end Dustin Keller reported via Twitter that the alarm got pulled at their Providence hotel last night, it was hard to rule out some sort of hijinx.

Well, you can now. The Jets just gave me the explanation of how it all went down.

Far out of earshot of the club's hotel block, maintenance workers were doing some sanding in a stairwell. As might be expected, dust kicked up and that, somehow, was enough to set off the alarm. And from there, an entire pro football team found itself out in the cold, waiting for fire trucks to show up before heading back to bed.

So there you have it.
