Ravens’ Smith warns Beckham: If you hit me late, we’re fighting
It's only Wednesday, but, Baltimore cornerback Jimmy Smith wants to make it very clear that he is not having any of Odell Beckham Jr.'s nonsense when the Ravens face the Giants on Sunday.
If there is any foul play this weekend, Smith told ESPN's Jamison Hensley that there will be immediate physical retaliation:
“All of that extra hitting and talking, that's not going to fly … that's not my game. I like to line up and play. 'Give me your best shot, and I'll give you mine.' But if you hit me after the whistle, there's going to be a fight.”
Whether it was against the Minnesota Vikings' hard-nosed cornerback Xavier Rhodes in Week 4, or vs. Washington Redskins cornerback Josh Norman, whom Beckham has an extensive history with, Odell has not dealt well with physical play this season.
Needless to say, this Sunday's matchup at MetLife Stadium is going to be quite interesting…
