On Sunday, Lattimore found himself in a verbal scuffle with Bucs QB Tom Brady and RB Leonard Fournette. With no provocation, Evans came rushing in from the sidelines with a blindside hit to Lattimore. It was the second fight of the game between Evans and Lattimore and led to an ejection for both.
The brawl is the latest installment of a long-standing feud between Lattimore and Evans. This is the fourth time the two have fought each other and/or been ejected from a game. The pair previously sparked brawls in 2017, 2020, and 2021.
Perhaps instead of a suspension, the NFL should think about a restraining order between these two.
