NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The feud between Tennessee Titans left tackle Taylor Lewan and Washington Redskins cornerback Josh Norman continued to be a subject of dialog Friday, nearly every week after issues first bubbled over between the 2 final Saturday.
Requested about Norman by reporters Friday, Lewan stated, “I went and stated one thing to him on his sideline after the sport. Was it disrespectful? Sure. Was it meant to be disrespectful? Sure.”
Lewan added: “If he has an issue with that, man, I ain’t worried. Wolves do not care about the opinions of sheep.”
The dispute arose when Lewan accused Norman of attempting to damage Titans working again Derrick Henry after Henry was tackled within the fourth quarter of Saturday’s sport. Lewan went over to Washington’s bench the place Norman was sitting and confronted him. Norman jumped up and threw his helmet on the veteran offensive lineman, who reacted by making a bow-and-arrow gesture towards him. (The gesture is typically utilized by Norman to have a good time after huge performs.)
The 2 have been separated earlier than the dispute escalated. Norman refused to discuss to the media after the sport, however spoke about the incident earlier this week, calling Lewan’s actions “most disrespect.”
“We’re not having it. We’ll not tolerate disrespect. That was the last word disrespect. You simply do not try this,” Norman stated Wednesday.
For his half, Henry stated after the sport he was simply centered on getting optimistic yards and not what Norman may need been attempting to do.
“No matter he was attempting to do, he was attempting to do,” Henry stated. “I do not assume he was attempting to try this. But when he was, it did not work.”
