Now, it sounds like star safety Jessie Bates has entered the chat and is backing his Apple.
Jessie Bates Enters The Chat Amid Dolphins-Bengals Trash Talking
According to PFF, Bates is backing up his teammate 100 percent. The Bengals’ star safety chimed in on the trash talk, stating “I don’t know if Eli got him tickets to the Super Bowl last year or not. I think that’s probably why he’s a little upset… If somebody comes after Eli [Apple], he comes after all of us.” Those are some strong words from Jessie Bates ahead of Thursday night’s game.
