Shareece Wright Dishes On Steve Smith, Flacco & Kaepernick’s Protest

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — Baltimore Ravens cornerback Shareece Wright joined the Brown and Scoop show in New York to talk about his game-leading 11 tackles in Week 1, the 2016 season, his teammates and much more.

ON STEVE SMITH:

“There’s not a day and practice that he doesn’t call me or Jimmy out. He challenges us to be great. He’s number one biggest smack talker I have played with.  Not only that, he backs it up. He wants you to not say anything back to him. If you don’t say nothing back, he’s going to keep on going. If you do respond, it makes it worse. If he’s having one of those days, good luck to those corners out there going up against that guy.”

ON COLIN KAEPERNICK:

“I would stand, but I understand his position and the purpose behind it and the movement. We want to celebrate those people fighting for our country, but at the same time, there is a lot of injustice going on in the world we living in today. I’m excited to see that there’s guys that aren’t guys that are afraid to step up and be a voice. They always talk about us football players, we have a platform to make a difference in this world. We have to step up and stand up for it. It’s ok for us to stand up for certain things, but when he stands up for what’s not right in this world, everyone wants to give him a hard time. If he was talking about domestic violence or something like that, that the NFL is all of a sudden an ambassador for, it’s no problem, it’s ok for him to do that. When he wants to stand up for what he believes in, it’s just the world we live in. I’m not even surprised people were burning his jerseys, because a lot of people won’t understand his position and what he’s really standing up for. A lot of people don’t really understand that and a lot of people don’t really understand what the national anthem is about, what it really is. When they do their research and they understand what it is, they’ll understand why he’s doing what he’s doing and why a lot of guys in the NFL are supporting him when it comes to that.”

ON HIS TEAMMATES:

“Maybe he could have did a better job by including his teammates, like what those guys did in Seattle. How they came together as a team and they made a decision to stand as one and not necessarily bring the attention to certain individuals. They got together as a team and they did it together. I thank God I’m not in that locker room anymore, but that’s a different story. Hopefully his teammates support him. There’s nothing worse than not having the support of your teammates.”

ON JOE FLACCO BEING ELITE:

“He’s a Super Bowl MVP man…it’s one of those things where you can’t say he’s not when he’s accomplished a lot of things. They talk about Philip Rivers being an elite quarterback, but not be able to make it through the playoffs and win Super Bowls and Flacco has been able to do that. Not only win it, but he was a Super Bowl MVP. Regardless of how you put that, it’s hard to say he’s not that guy. I believe in him and our team we believe in him and we believe he can get us there again. We’re looking forward to that.”
