Last week ahead of the Thursday Night Football matchup between the Denver Broncos and Kansas City Chiefs, NFL Network analyst and former NFL wide receiver Steve Smith dug into Jerry Jeudy.
Smith went on a tirade discussing the former Alabama wide receiver saying he would inform other teams not to trade for him.
The debacle began ahead of the game when Smith referred to Jeudy as a JAG (just a guy) on his podcast “Cut To It” and when he wanted to clarify his comments to Jeudy in person he made it clear that he wanted such part.
So Smith instead held this segment on the pregame show.

Despite not having words for Smith after the game, Jeudy responded to the viral video during his own media availability on Thursday.
“I’m just going to head in and clear the air,” Jeudy said. “This is my last time talking about it. Basically, if he say he came to apologize, if he came to apologize to me, I would’ve understand that and I would have listened to what he had to say. But where I’m from, we just don’t – if somebody talk bad about you, you don’t go to them in person and try to act friendly towards them like you ain’t just talked bad about them.
“I don’t got no hate towards Steve Smith. He was a good player and stuff like that. I just stand on what I stand on. You feel me?”
