Jacksonville Jaguars rookie defensive back Jalen Ramsey and Baltimore Ravens receiver Steve Smith have been locked in a war of words all day.
It all started after today's game, won by the Ravens over the Jags 19-17. The two jawed a bit on the field during the game, and afterwards, Smith (eight catches, 87 yards in the win) went up to Ramsey at midfield and let him have an earful.
In the post-game locker room, Ramsey referred to the 37-year-old Smith as "an old man."
"Ya'll tell me who got in whose head," Ramsey said. "He came up to me after the game, you feel me? Y'all tell me who got in whose head. He's an old man acting like that.
"Ain't nobody worried about him. He came up to me, you know what I'm saying, on some disrespectful stuff. The game's over with. You still mad 'cause I was locking you up? All right, go sleep on that. I ain't trying to hear that after the game."
Tonight, Smith responded on Twitter. Boy, did he ever.
Smith is a legendary trash talker and one of the toughest competitors in the NFL. Ramsey might be barking up the wrong tree here.
Either way, we wish these two teams were going to be playing each other again this year.
