Family tension between the Los Angeles Rams’ Jalen Ramsey and the New York Giants’ Golden Tate may have led to a brawl involving their teams in LA on Sunday.
“I’m not happy at all with the disrespect that he’s shown towards my sister, and the things he’s done in the past,” Tate told the tabloid last October after Ramsey posted photos with a new girlfriend. Also that month, Tate posted a veiled threat about their next game against each other.
In Sunday’s game, Ramsey’s hard tackle of Tate in the fourth quarter may have lit the fuse for a physical confrontation after time expired on the Rams’ 17-9 victory, For the Win noted.

Ramsey may have waited for Tate outside the Giants’ locker room for another go but ultimately there was no second round, ESPN reporter Jordan Raanan tweeted.
Neither player commented to the media after the game. But on Monday, Ramsey seemed to warn Twitter followers about lies circulating about the situation but didn’t specify. “Don’t believe or feed into the cap,” he wrote.
Don’t believe or feed into the cap 😂🤣.. y’all be blessed today. God is great all the time!
