Jaguars’ Jalen Ramsey told AJ Green he was ‘soft’, ‘weak’ before fight

Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey revealed why he and Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver A.J. Green fought during Sunday’s game.

Just before halftime, Ramsey and Green were seen fighting downfield after a play ended. 

Ramsey shoved Green first and then Green put Ramsey in a headlock, took him to the ground and threw several punches.

Ramsey told media on Wednesday that he said something to the former University of Georgia receiver before the fight went down.

"I told him almost every play that he was weak, that he was soft. (That's) straight facts. He just couldn't handle the truth," Ramsey said, according to ESPN.

Both Green and Ramsey were ejected for fighting but will not serve a suspension.

The Jaguars won Sunday’s game in Jacksonville, 23-7.
