Marcus Peters releases statement saying he didn’t spit at Jarvis Landry


Ravens cornerback Marcus Peters says he didn’t spit at Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry during Monday night’s win in Cleveland, he said in a statement.

Landry called Peters “a coward” on Thursday.

“I didn’t spit at Jarvis,” Peters said in a team-released statement. “Where I come from, when you have an issue with someone, you deal with it face-to-face, man-to-man. Anyone who believes that I intentionally spit at him does not know me – plain and simple.”

Peters and the Ravens beat the Browns 47-42 in one of the best games of the year. Any rematch, though, will have to wait until next season.
