Former New York Jets quarterback Geno Smith isn’t pleased with ESPN after releasing a story on 2015 locker room fight.
Did you forget?
Here is a refresher via Larry Brown Sports.
“Smith suffered a broken jaw before the 2015 season after then-teammate IK Enemkpali sucker-punched him in the locker room. The dispute began over $600 that Smith supposedly owed Enemkpali when the quarterback no-showed a youth football camp that Enemkpali had invited him to. ESPN’s Rich Cimini spoke with several former Jets players about the incident and published a lengthy piece on Tuesday, which irritated Smith.
Smith went to Twitter with some words that put media outlets on notice who might’ve misconstrued the truth.
It’s important to understand it’s an athlete’s responsibility to correct media members who might twist the truth or take what they hear and run with it. Smith should’ve been spoken out on the story years prior once it was released. This is just another sports athlete who will fade off into the sunset with all due respect.
