Biggs: Rodgers claims Tapp bit him
We’ve seen players get penalized and fined for spitting, but this takes it to a new level. A whole new dimension.
Aaron Rodgers claims that an opponent bit him. An opponent he will be facing this Sunday, which is what makes this such a, well, juicy story.
Rodgers claims that Seattle Seahawks defensive end Darryl Tapp bit him during a game between the teams last season. Greg Bedard of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel does a marvelous job chronicling the whole episode, complete with some pictures. Thing is, it’s awful hard to tell how Tapp pulled off what Rodgers said he did.
"Yeah, he bit me through my long sleeve that I was wearing," Rodgers said, looking down at his left arm. "There wasn't a whole lot of words spoken. I looked down and my arm was hurt and it felt like a bee sting. I was looking down and he was biting my arm so I had to get his teeth off my shoulder.
"Luckily I was wearing a long sleeve so I don't know if he actually (broke the skin). I had a bruise for the rest of the season. Other than that I was good."
Tapp raised a pretty good question via his Twitter account when asked about it: "How can a football player bite another player when he's wearing a helmet and mouthpiece. (Come on people) let's be serious here. And of all (people), me?”
The good thing is they can get together this Sunday and, you know, go for a second course.
