Ravens’ Mike Wallace Says Fans Disrespected Breshad Perriman
Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Mike Wallace is upset with Ravens fans, claiming that they disrespected fellow Ravens’ wide out Breshad Perriman.
The sarcastic cheers didn’t sit well with Wallace.
“That [stuff] is disrespectful,” Wallace told The Baltimore Sun. “I don’t agree with that. I would have flipped them the bird — everybody — if that was me. I’m happy he’s not like me. I would have turned around and flipped the bird to the whole stadium. That’s just me. I don’t care who likes it or how they feel. That’s disrespectful. They’re acting like he’s trying to have bad games.”
Perriman, a 2015 1st round pick, has had a rough start to his career.
“I didn’t know what the cheers were for,” Perriman said. “I didn’t know if they were good or bad. So I can’t be mad.”
“He’s never going to let that get him down,” Wallace said of the cheers directed at Perriman.
“That shows his character and what our team is all about. Guys put their heads down and keep working. You don’t always get to do what you want to do, but you’ve got to keep grinding. He’s going to be fine. I think he’s going to make some big plays for us going down the stretch.”
“It is what it is,” Perriman said. “Regardless, I’m going to still do me and get in my playbook. I don’t care what they do. They can boo me if they want.”
