Truth About Titans Player Spitting On Ravens Star Emerges
The truth about a Titans player spitting on a Ravens star emerged on Saturday evening.
Baltimore offensive lineman Marshal Yanda made the stunning accusation following his team’s 28-12 defeat to Tennessee.
According to Yanda, rookie defensive lineman Jeffrey Simmons spit directly in his face during the divisional round showdown.
“I had that guy spit in my face,” he told reporters after the fact.
“I just want to put him on notice in the media. I’ve never done this in my career, but I just want to let you know that there’s a right way and a wrong way to play football.
“That guy did not do it the right way.”

When asked additional questions about the incident, Yanda insisted that he told referees and a Tennessee veteran about what Simmons had done.
It is unclear whether the official or the veteran Titans player did anything about what transpired.
Simmons was Tennessee’s 19th pick in the 2019 NFL Draft. He recorded one tackle in his team’s impressive upset victory on Saturday.
More questions regarding Simmons’ actions will likely follow on Sunday and in the coming days.
As for the Titans, they now get to sit back and relax. Their next game will be in the AFC Championship Game against the winner of Sunday’s battle between the Kansas City Chiefs and Houston Texans.
