Back in November 2017, things were getting ugly at the Superdome.
Tampa Bay Buccaneers wide receiver Mike Evans laid a cheap shot on New Orleans Saints cornerback Marshon Lattimore during an altercation with teammate Jameis Winston near the Bucs’ sideline in New Orleans.
Lattimore and Winston exchanged words before the quarterback poked the defensive back from behind. When Lattimore retaliated, he was pancaked from behind by Evans.

Surprisingly, the wide receiver was not ejected from the game and instead was flagged for a personal foul.
Obviously, there was plenty for the Bucs to be frustrated about trailing 30-3 late in the third quarter.
This wasn’t the first altercation between a wide receiver and defensive back in Week 9 of that seaason. Cincinnati Bengals receiver A.J. Green and Jacksonville Jaguars cornerback Jalen Ramsey were ejected for fighting during their game that Sunday.
