New York Jets wide receiver Percy Harvin has become the main subject of many of NFL headlines for the past few days since being traded from the Seattle Seahawks.
He was allegedly traded due to anger issues and being a cancer in the locker room. Reports came out saying that Harvin fought with teammates, including wide receivers Golden Tate and Doug Baldwin.
However, Tate has denied rumors of him receiving a black eye and almost breaking his neck during a fight with Harvin. “I didn’t get punched in the face. That’s all a lie,” the Detroit Lions receiver said to CBS Detroit.
Conflicting reports have said there was still a fight though, as quarterback Russell Wilson has said he wanted to help Harvin with his anger issues, and running back Michael Robinson said he broke up a fight between the two.
There was allegedly a body slam involved if not a punch, but Tate has done nothing to hint at there being a fight while outright denying being punched.
