On “Catchin’ Fades with Aqib Talib,” Peters revealed what set him off in November 2019, when he engaged in a heated, postgame verbal altercation with Ramsey. The Rams acquired Ramsey only hours after trading Peters to Baltimore in that 2019 season.
“F– them,” Peters said in a clip released Tuesday. “I felt disrespected. In the sense of, yeah, you can trade me. That is part of the business enterprise. But two minutes after that, you earn a different man who do exactly the very same s– I do, perhaps a little bit different. If we would like to play this compare match, then I do just a tiny bit longer. That s– was disrespectful to me”
Peters and Talib were teammates on that 2019 Rams team.
In October 2019, Peters was traded to the Ravens for linebacker Kenny Young and a 2020 fifth-round pick. Six weeks later, Peters expressed no hard feelings against the Rams before his first game against his former team.
But, after the Ravens’ 45-6 rout of the Rams on Monday Night Football, Peters and Ramsey had to be controlled by security and staff on the field. As Peters made his way up the L.A. Memorial Coliseum tunnel to the visitors locker room, he hollered:”Kicking the Rams’ buttocks out of the playoffs.”
“I don’t believe we was the issue [with the Rams],” Peters said Tuesday. “I don’t believe we were the problem that has been holding the Rams back from taking the steps of where we had to get to.”
The Ravens will host the Rams as a portion of the NFL’s recently added 17th regular-season game. The schedule is anticipated to be released May 12, and it’s apparent which game will get circled by Peters.
