Hunter Renfrow found hismelf trending liek crazy earlier this week when multiple reporters stated he was destroying Jalen Ramsey in joint practice. Media members shared several notes about Renfrow beating Ramsey when the two were matched up, including a deep pass completed by Derek Carr.
If you ask ramsey, which he was, he will tell you that the entire thing was blown out of proportion. He met with reporters after Thursday’s practice, which was cut short due to a brawl and set the record straight.
“I guess some of their media thought that Hunter Renfrow had a really good day against me,” Ramsey said Thursday, via The Athletic’s Jourdan Rodrigue.
“I still can’t find the plays. I done watched the film twice and I still can’t find the plays where I was burnt multiple times. But sure. He had one good catch on me yesterday. … It’s cool, I get that, you know, sometimes mentioning my name going against certain receivers may give them buzz and it may pump them up some. This is no disrespect to Hunter Renfrow because I actually think he’s a pretty good player. I think he has some Cooper Kupp in him.”
“But I didn’t have no issues yesterday. Watching the film, I played pretty well yesterday. Maybe some people just need to learn the difference between zone and man schemes. It doesn’t really bother me, but sometimes you’ve got to set the record straight sometimes. And then you just leave it at that, tell people to enjoy their day and keep it pushin’.”
Hunter Renfrow certainly bought into the hype that beat Ramsey with his comments.
“For me, I’m just going out there and doing my job and having fun and really just competing with myself. And that’s the beauty of it — if I can beat Jalen Ramsey, then I can beat anybody in the NFL because he’s one of the best. And that’s how I approach it,” Renfrow said in his post-practice press conference. “And he got me a few times today, and so hopefully tomorrow we’ll make each other better again.”
