Bucs' Hawley says Seahawks player spat on him during game
Bucs center Joe Hawley said he was spat on by a Seattle player during Sunday’s 14-5 win over the Seahawks.
Although Hawley said he cannot be sure, he believes the expectorating player was Alabama rookie defensive tackle Jarran Reed.
"They were hitting me late and when I got up, when I got all fired up, one guy actually spit in my face after one of the plays and I got all fired up because I don’t think that should be part of the game at all," Hawley said Thursday night during his weekly radio show on 620-WDAE. "It’s one thing pushing, shouting, yelling, but as soon as he spit in my face, I was pretty fired up about that."
When asked if he thought the player who spit on him was No. 90 (Reed), Hawley said, "Yeah I think that’s who it was. I’m not sure. He’s a young guy, he just ... that’s not the way to do it."
