Jarvis Landry called Baltimore Ravens cornerback Marcus Peters “cowardly” after a video clip showed Peters apparently spitting at the Cleveland Browns wide receiver as he walked away during their Monday Night Football matchup.
“He’s a coward,” Landry said Thursday. “I think he knew that maybe behind my back he’d do things like that, but to my face, he wouldn’t. … Now I know. Everybody knows the type of player he is, the type of person he is.”
“Wait until I turn around and do something like that? It’s like, do it to my face,” Landry said. “Be a man about it if you’re going to do something like that.”
The incident occurred at the end of the first quarter of Monday Night Football.
Hours after Landry’s statement, Peters would send out a statement of his own that furiosuly denied accusations that spit at Landry.
The Ravens wound up defeating the Browns 47-42 in one of the top games of this NFL season.
“I won’t lose sleep,” Landry said. “But definitely going to make it another game to remember.”
