Earlier this week, Denver Broncos safety Darian Stewart told the media that he intends on “cutting” Pittsburgh Steelers center Cody Wallace in the Sunday playoff game between the two teams as payback for the lineman cheap-shotting safety David Bruton in the last meeting between the two teams. On Wednesday, Stewart’s threat finally got back to Steelers guard Ramon Foster and he’s not happy about it as he called it a “bounty”.
“They are sending shots or warnings. I don’t understand that,” Foster said Wednesday according to Jeremy Fowler of ESPN.com. “For a guy to be in that position and publicly put that out there, that’s just unnecessary.”
Wallace was also asked about Stewart’s recent comments on Wednesday and he took them way more in stride than Foster did.
“They’re wanting to stick up for their guy like I was for AB [Antonio Brown], so that’s good and that’s a sign of a good team,” said Wallace, who was fined for his hit on Bruton several weeks ago.
Wallace continued that he’s not shocked that he’s public enemy No. 1 this week.
“No, it’s understandable,” he said. “I knew it at the time that it happened I was in the wrong for it the league handled the way they wanted to and I paid my fine and so we’ll move on and see what happens.”
Stewart might as well show up Sunday with a flashing red light on his helmet as you know the league is well aware of his recent threat. Being as the Steelers AFC Wild Card game included a lot of questionable hits, one would think that the officiating crew assigned to Sunday’s game between the Steelers and Broncos won’t want a repeat of what happened Saturday night in Cincinnati.
