Appearing on ESPN’s “First Take” last Wednesday, former NFL linebacker Bart Scott took a few shots at third-year player Marquise Brown, arguing the wide receiver wouldn’t start for some of the league’s top teams.
Brown shot back on Twitter: “His name Bart what you expect.”
Brown went a little more in-depth during his appearance on WJZ’s “Purple Playbook.”
“That was pretty disrespectful, I’m not gonna lie,” he told Mark Viviano. “I don’t usually respond to people but if I see Bart in person, we got words.”
Scott is just as much of a big deal in Baltimore as he was in New York, as he dedicated seven seasons and 448 total tackles (16 sacks) to the Ravens franchise. He fired back at the young WR in the comment section of his shots towards his name.
“Yeah because it ain’t his, it’s actually mine. All he has to do if he wants to figure out what my credentials are or see how verified I am, just walk down the hallway. I don’t know how often you go upstairs, where they keep the real posters of the people that meant something [to] that organization, but when you walk down that hallway [you’re] gonna see pictures of me homeboy. [And] they’ve been there since I’ve left. Your pictures are just part of the catch of the week, they do that to make you feel good, but eventually they give those away to all the players at the end of the year, mine’s staying. [People] talk about blood in the soil, DNA, I built bricks, I added bricks to that legacy over there, so don’t ever come at me bro.”
“[I’m not going to] just lie to make you feel good,” he continued, “the truth of the matter is that Lamar does more with less than anybody [else].”
He also addressed the shots at his name.
“Come on man, my name?” Scott ended with, “my name is Bartholomew, yes, and Bartholomew will get an interview anywhere. Marqueese, Marquise — you might not get called back sometimes bro. Hollywood, unless you’re going to be one of the Chip-and-Dale dancers or something like that, that ain’t going to get you anywhere man because your career has been anything but Hollywood — it’s been more Bollywood than anything.”
Scott also made sure to hit back at ex-QB Robert Griffin III, who had defended his former teammate Brown. The linebacker noted that RGIII just “sipped tea in Baltimore” and “[made] sure the bubbles [were] rinsed off Lamar Jackson’s back.”
