Two key pieces to a large New York Jets puzzle got heated at training camp today.
Two of the foremost contributors to the New York Jets’ success got somewhat personal with each other during training camp. Brandon Marshall and Darrelle Revis were matched up with each other, which would normally come off as a premier matchup between teammates.
However, few would draw the conclusion that either player would have ill-will towards the other.
According to Rich Cimini of ESPN, things got a little testy:
“It’s been a spirited practice between Darrelle Revis and Brandon Marshall. Revis got the best of him early, then Marshall beat him for a long TD, trash talking Revis. After the brief scuffle, Marshall yelled a DeAndre Hopkins comment at Revis, reminding the corner of his struggles last season against the Houston receiver — a low blow. Marshall wouldn’t shut up, screaming at Revis when he was on the sideline.”
A portion of the altercation included spiteful contact, he added:
“Jets WR Brandon Marshall took a swing at Darrelle Revis in practice. Marshall was on the sideline and walked over to Revis, who was on the field. They exchanged words and Marshall threw a punch with his right hand. They were quickly separated. Quincy Enunwa literally picked up Marshall and carried him away. Marshall had been jawing at Revis throughout the practice. Fireworks at Jets camp.”
All the situation essentially comes down to at this point is the two individuals playing their respective roles. Conflicts eventually blow over, but on-field performance is permanent.
