Jerry Jeudy’s Latest News
Steve Smith Sr. comments on Broncos’ Jerry Jeudy
Steve Smith, known for not tolerating disrespect, expressed his feelings about Denver Broncos receiver Jerry Jeudy on the NFL Network. The former Panthers star and current NFL Network analyst openly shared that he confronted Jeudy before the Broncos’ game against the Kansas City Chiefs.
Smith said he called Jeudy a “JAG” — “just a guy,” in NFL vernacular — meaning he was an average player and said he wanted to tell him that he was playing well, and “I know I said some things in the past I probably shouldn’t have, and I’m sorry.”
“That’s what I wanted to say to him,” Smith said on NFL Network.
Smith said that Jeudy blew him off. Smith said Jeudy told him, “I don’t mess with you,” but with a curse word. Jeudy said that twice, Smith said.
Smith, not surprisingly, was fired up by that and ripped Jeudy on air.
I’m sorry I said you were a ‘JAG,’ just a guy, who is an average wide receiver they used a first-round pick on that isn’t doing anything,” Smith said. “I hope today you actually show up in a way you haven’t shown up in the last couple years since they drafted you.
“So if you ever got a problem with Agent 89, I’m sorry for saying you’re an average wide receiver that they will eventually move on [from]. And when teams call me and ask if they should trade for you, I would say no, don’t trade for Jerry Jeudy. Because he’s mentally unable to handle constructive criticism from people who watch specifically, can he be a wide receiver? He can be a wide receiver. He’s a tier three.
After his confrontation with Jeudy, Smith instructed the NFL Network crew to return to the studio, signifying the end of his comments. But the incident didn’t conclude there; Jeudy intentionally danced behind Smith and Mike Garafolo as they continued their next segment from the sideline.
