Ryan Clark explains what happened in the Jets locker room; Geno not sucker punched

Former NFL safety Ryan Clark is now an ESPN Analyst and he did a wonderful job at breaking down what happened in the lockerroom yesterday with the Jets.

Here is what Ryan said:

“IT WAS OVER FLIGHTS AND OVER CAMPS NOT ATTENDED AND NOT NECESSARILY THE FACT THAT HE DIDN’T GO, BECAUSE HE UNDERSTOOD THE REASON, BUT I’VE DEALT WITH I.K. A LOT. THIS GUY IS REALLY TIGHT ABOUT MONEY, HE REALLY IS. SO WHEREAS I’VE SEEN OTHER PLAYERS HAVE THIS HAPPEN AND KIND OF JUST MOVE ON FROM IT, HE COULDN’T, AND YOU KNOW, A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE SAYING YOU DON’T PUNCH A GUY OVER THAT AMOUNT OF MONEY. IT BECAME ABOUT THE FACT THAT GENO WASN’T NECESSARILY APOLOGETIC AND BEING IN A WAY REMORSEFUL ABOUT THE MONEY WHEN SAYING HE WAS GOING TO PAY I.K. BACK. YOU KNOW, HE DIDN’T, AND HE WAS RATHER SMUG ABOUT IT. SO THESE GUYS GOT INTO IT EARLIER IN CAMP ABOUT THIS MONEY.”

– Geno wasn’t sucker punched.

“MY REPORT SAYS GENO PUT HIS FINGER IN HIS FACE AND TOLD THE GUY, WELL, YOU’RE NOT GOING TO DO ANYTHING ABOUT IT.”

– There might be legal action as a result of Smith’s injuries.

“THIS IS SUCH HIGH STAKES, SUCH HUGE REPERCUSSIONS, SUCH HUGE CONSEQUENCES, PRESSING CHARGES I GUESS STILL IS A POSSIBILITY.”

– Enemkpali and Smith had already gotten into it about the money.

“THIS WASN’T THE FIRST TIME THEY HAD AN ISSUE OVER THIS SAME SITUATION AND NOTHING CAME FROM IT THE FIRST TIME. YOU KNOW, THE FIRST TIME THEY GOT INTO AN ARGUMENT, YOU KNOW, WORDS WERE SAID, DISRESPECT THROWN BOTH WAYS, BOTH GUYS SEPARATE AND WALK AWAY. SO WHEN YOU HAVE THAT SITUATION HAPPEN ONE TIME, I’M SURE A LOT OF PEOPLE WEREN’T EXPECTING IT TO GET WHERE IT’S GONE.”

It sounds like Geno provoked the fight. So maybe that is why he won’t be given the starting job back when he returns? He will have to earn the spot back…
