After near brawl, Eagles fans get vulgar with Redskins LB Terence Garvin

After near brawl, Eagles fans get vulgar with Redskins LB Terence Garvin

Redskins linebacker Terence Garvin had never played in Philadelphia until Sunday, and after the game and a near brawl with the Eagles sideline, he will probably never forget it. Prior to this year, Garvin played three years for the Steelers, but never made the trip to Lincoln Financial Field.

A special teams standout, Garvin was on the field in the fourth quarter when a big hit from Deshazor Everett on Eagles punt returner Darren Sproles nearly sparked a major brawl. As players from the Philly bench emptied out onto the field, Garvin was in the middle of it all.

"I guess [Everett] hit him, I thought it was a legal hit," Garvin said. "[Eagles special teamer Steven Means] grabbed me kinda crazy, he said something kinda crazy. It triggered me a little bit." 

From there, Garvin was in a situation where he felt he could not back down, though eventually referees got the scene under control and players from both sides returned to their benches. Everett was flagged for a penalty, deservedly, but football took back over.

After the game, Garvin explained that it was just one of those flare-up instances that happen sometimes while playing.

"In game be a lot of words, but it's all good. Just a little moment, aggression."

It wasn't just the pushing and shoving between players that Garvin will remember. What stood out to Garvin most came when he got back to the bench after the scuffle. 

"I can honestly say I had a fan look me in my eyes and say, 'Terence Garvin, you’re a b**ch.' Look me in my eyes. I started laughing, it brought some chuckle to me," he said. 

Garvin goes 6-foot-3 and 220 lbs. He grew up in Baltimore. A fan hurling curse words at him is probably not a good idea. Then again, fans at Eagles games are notorious for bad language and crude behavior. Not all, but a consistent bunch. And yet, Garvin enjoyed it.

"It's a hostile stadium here. I think that makes the game better though. You feel it," he said. "Hostility is never a bad thing, it’s a hostile game. Don’t take hostility as a negative."

Former Redskins quarterback Kirk Cousins is among the top 10 highest-paid athletes in the world in 2020, according to Forbes.

Cousins, who came in as the ninth highest-paid athlete overall, is the top-ranked NFL athlete on the list, coming in one spot above Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz.

Forbes estimated the Vikings QB's earnings at $60.5 million, with $58 million coming from his salary and $2.5 million from his endorsements.

In March, Cousins signed a two-year, $66 million extension with the Vikings, one that included a $30 million signing bonus. The signal-caller originally signed with the Vikings in 2018 on a three-year, fully-guaranteed $84 million deal that at the time made him the highest-paid player in NFL history.

The Vikings signal-caller has earned over $130 million in his career thus far, according to OverTheCap.

Cousins spent the first six seasons of his career with the Redskins, with three of those years as the team's starter. The quarterback set the franchise's single-season passing yards record in 2016 when he threw for 4,917 yards for Washington. His 29 touchdown passes in 2017 were the second-most by any Redskins quarterback in a single-season.

Young becomes the second Buckeye-turned-Redskin to win Ohio State's Male Athlete of the Year award in as many years, as quarterback Dwayne Haskins earned the honor in 2018-19.

Congratulations to Young and his family on the outstanding achievement.
