According to Pro Football Talk, New York Jets wide receiver Brandon Marshall and defensive lineman Sheldon Richardson got into a heated exchanges following their Week 3 loss. The Jets Los to the Kansas City Chiefs in this game.
It was one of several losses for the Jets as they’re 1-5. Marshall and Richardson are the team’s best offensive and defensive players.
According to ESPN.com, Marshall said it was a disagreement between “two Alpha males . . . two bulls.” Jets coach Todd Bowles says he had to intervene between the two.
“I took care of it right there,” Bowles said. “I addressed the team and I addressed the two guys. It will not happen again.”
This is nothing new with the Jets. Last year, former linebacker IL Enemkpali punched Geno Smith for refusing to pay money back to Enemkpali.
The punch broke Smith’s jaw and cost Smith a shot at starting. Ryan Fitzpatrick took over the starting role until this Sunday when Smith is going to start again.
“There were no residual effects, no physicality,” Bowles said. “After the game, everybody was pissed off and you throw stuff. They should be pissed off, but not at each other. It was just one of those things.”
The Jets say they’re not going to trade Richardson or Marshall — or any of their good players — after their bad start to the season. When the season goes bad, there’s typically going to be a divided locker room.
There could be more of this moving forward with the Jets if they can’t turn their season around.
