San Francisco 49ers cornerback Charvarius Ward is not impressed with DeAndre Hopkins.
Following the 49ers’ 38-10 win over the Cardinals on Monday Night Football in Mexico City, Ward joined KNBR’s Greg Papa and Tim Ryan and unloaded on Hopkins:
“D Hop, he think he a tough guy,” Ward said, per Jake Hutchinson of KNBR. “He think he still one of the best receivers in the league and he really not. He was trying to talk noise and talk hard all game. We not scared of him. He thought we was scared of him. He tried to intimidate us, but forget him, we did our thing. We went out there and got a dub and we did our job. He was just yip-yapping all game, but we don’t care about that. We just wanted to win.”
“He was getting locked up. He was doing some dirty things,” Ward said. “He tried to clip me, he grabbed me by the throat. He grabbed my facemask on one play, so I don’t respect his game. That’s steroid boy.”
The 49ers and Cardinals will meet again in Week 18.
