Former NFL linebacker Bill Romanowski appeared on ESPN radio to discuss the altercation that led to IK Enemkpali breaking Geno Smith’s jaw at Jets camp earlier this week. Romanowski recalled one very interesting off-the-field incident between himself and a former teammate.
“I got in a lot of fights out on the field in training camp, but I never got…” Romanowski said. “Well, I take that back. I got in one in our lunchroom with Dexter Carter. But it was a quick one and nobody got hurt. I just threw a microwave at him.”
According to Romanowski, the incident occurred sometime in the early 1990s when both Carter and Romanowski were with the 49ers. Romanowski didn’t appreciate Carter putting a sandwich into a microwave when he was trying to use it. Words were exchanged and Romanowski eventually picked up the microwave and chucked it at Carter.
Romanowski spent 16 years in the NFL and has quite a record of violent altercations.
