Giants receiver Golden Tate says little on fight with Ramsey
EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - New York Giants recipient Golden Tate spoke to Rams cornerback Jalen Ramsey last weekend about his post-game fight and said he wants to focus on helping the team finally get a win.
Tate spoke to the media for the first time since meeting Ramsey on the field following the Rams' win on Sunday and refused to discuss the incident at length on Thursday. He insisted that he left it behind.
Both players face possible fines or a suspension from the NFL. Your teams have indicated that none of them will face disciplinary action.
In a virtual press conference after the Giants (0-4) trained for Sunday's game in Dallas (1-3), Tate said little when asked what after the final whistle in the Rams' 17-9 win against New York in Inglewood. California.
"I don't want to step down and argue about it because I don't think it will help us come back to it this week," said Tate. "I really don't want to draw any more attention to myself or bring out other highlights that have nothing to do with Dallas. So I just want to go ahead and get a win this week."
Ramsey did not speak about the incident.
The two Nashville area natives have a feud over Ramsey's previous relationship with Breanna Tate, mother of Ramsey's two young children and sister of Golden Tate.
Ramsey and Breanna Tate split up last year, reportedly while Breanna Tate was pregnant with their second child. Golden Tate announced its displeasure with Ramsey on social media and it boiled over at their first local meeting since then. They'd been on the field multiple times during the game, and Ramsey scored a spectacular, bone-breaking goal against Tate in an important third place in the fourth quarter.
Tate said he spoke extensively with his sister about the event. He did not reveal what was said and said again that he wanted to move forward. The 31-year-old recipient also refused to answer a question about regretting the incident.
Coach Joe Judge said his players told him Tate didn't throw the first punch. People in the stadium who saw the fight said it was difficult to say who instigated it.
Now in its 11th season, Tate isn't sure the NFL will crack down on him and Ramsey. A fine would be more likely than a suspension for an incident that was quickly resolved by teammates and coaches.
"I'm just practicing preparing for Dallas this week," Tate said. "I mean, we're hungry for a win right now. That's all that matters. And I don't want to distract attention from what's important, which is Dallas."
At the end of his virtual press conference, Tate was asked about the lack of bruises on his face
"I had my helmet on," he said.
