Eric Ebron Calls Out The NFL For ‘Trying To See Us Fail’
Eric Ebron didn’t hold back on his dislike for the NFL’s decision to make the Steelers play three games in 12 days, just because of negligence by the Baltimore Ravens on COVID-19 protocols.
“We put all of these stipulations in place,” Ebron said. “Everybody signed up and said, ‘Ok, this is gonna be cool.’ Nobody thought you would play three games in 12 days. Think about that. That’s us.
We play [Wednesday], we play Monday [against Washington], and we play Sunday [at Buffalo]. Oh my God. . . . They’re trying to see us fail, bro. Welcome to the National Football League.”
The Pittsburgh Steelers tight end also said he’d rather lose a game check than run this gauntlet of games.
“I don’t care about a game check,” Ebron said. “I’m sorry, I know there are people who don’t make the amount of money I do. I know that. So what? I’m sure they don’t want to play three games in 12 days either. They’d much rather, you know, lose a game check than risk them not making a check the next year because they’re hurt.”
This season, Ebron has been a solid piece to the Pittsburgh passing attack, totaling 413 yards and four touchdowns on 42 receptions.
