When the Jalen Ramsey vs. A.J. Green http://www.tampabaybuccaneersteamonline.com/mike-edwards-jersey , and Aqib Talib vs. Michael Crabtree in-game tussles played out, Pro Football Hall of Fame defensive back Ronnie Lott thought back to advice he received decades ago, before his San Francisco 49ers faced the Dallas Cowboys. ”who played for the Cowboys, called me up before we played them and said, `Do not get into a talking match with (receivers) Butch Johnson or Drew Pearson.’ So I didn’t. He was like, `Stay focused on the game,”’ Lott said. ”I’m sure that some coach or somebody said, `Don’t get caught up in that’ to the guys involved in things this season. ”Whatever the coaches said didn’t work.” Seem tt, a cornerback and safety from 1981-94. ”My rookie year, I remember having confrontations. They could be around the biggest or the littlest thing.” Broncos cornerback Talib and Raiders receiver Crabtree served one-week suspensions after getting into a fight during a game – a reprise of their skirmish last season. Both times, Talib ripped a gold chain off Crabtree’s neck. In another much-discussed episode, Jacksonville’s Ramsey and Cincinnati’s Green were ejected after a clash that looked straight out of a wrestling ring. ”There’s a lot of passion and emotions out of those two positions. It happens a lot in training camp and things like that, same deal,” Minnesota Vikings receiver Adam Thielen said. ”Even when you’re going against your own teammates, it brings a lot of emotion out of you, especially when you’re a competitor and you don’t like to lose.” The two episodes this season brought to mind other high-profile dustups. Josh Norman vs. Odell Beckham Jr. Or Andre Johnson vs. Cortland Finnegan. These spats are at least in part a result of what Redskins cornerback Norman describes as a world of constant chatter, gamesmanship and one-upmanship. ”If you stop them, you come back and say something. Then they catch th f his job, which he says is made harder by the NFL’s anti-defense rules and officiating. ”They don’t want defenders to be successful. And (fans) don’t want a guy to stop their man that they put in fantasy football. When we do, we’re the `worst ever.’ We’re `trash.’ But if we let someone catch the ball, we’re `trash,’ too. It’s ridiculous,” Norman said. ”We can’t win as defensive backs. It’s not set up for us to. But when we do win, and there is that little success that we have for ourselves, then we need to show it. Like, `Look! Take that!'” Players on both sides of the ball say the physical and mental back-and-forth both contribute to bad feelings. ”There’s a lot that goes out there on the field that’s behind the scenes,” Raiders cornerback TJ Carrie said. ”You really don’t pay attention to i eceiver Larry Fitzgerald said. He knows some defenders will ”try to add unnecessary brutality to the game,” he said, and there’s no way to avoid that. But when it comes to trash talk, Fitzgerald said: ”I’m not about that. If you call out my name, I’m not even going to acknowledge you. I just walk away.” Certainly, these conflicts happen at other positions. Still, as Redskins cornerback-turned-safety DeAngelo Hall noted, it’s harder to notice we’re isolated,” Hall said. ”At the end of the day, it’s me vs. you on that island.” Hall, whose 43 career interceptions lead active players, remembers when he was with the Falcons and faced the division-rival Panthers and now-retired receiver Steve Smith. ”Me and Steve had to be separated a couple of times,” Hall said. ”It was always almost to blows. Then, after or before the game, it was all cordial. Just that competitiveness of me and him wanting to beat each other down sparked those intense exchanges.” As for some of his other past foes? ”Me and (Terrell Owens) didn’t do a lot of talking. We just tried to rip each other’s heads off. Me and Chad Johnson did a l arterback Ben Roethlisberger around awhile longer.The Steelers have begun “preliminary” talks with Roethlisberger’s agent, Ryan Tollner, and a new deal could happen soon, according to Gerry Dulac of the .Roethlisberger is in the final year of a deal with will pay him $12 million in base salary with a $23.2 million cap number for 2019, according to overthecap.com. A new deal likely would run thought at least the 2022 season, per Dulac.Steelers General Manager Kevin Colbert told the team’s website earlier this week that he was optimistic an extension “will happen sooner than later.”Roethlisberger turns 37 on Saturday. In 15 seasons, he has passed for 56,194 yards, 363 touchdowns and 190 interceptions with a career passer rating of 94.2.
