Cleveland Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry called Baltimore Ravens cornerback Marcus Peters “cowardly” on Thursday after video came out of the latter player spitting at him on Monday Night Football.
“He’s a coward,” Landry said.
“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.”
The pair’s squabble occurred at the end of the first quarter of this week’s game. Landry only realized what Peters had done after watching a replay of the ESPN broadcast.
“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 Ravens ended up defeating the Browns 47-42.
