VIDEO: Steve Smith Trash Talks DJ Moore By Asking Cam Newton If Should Start WR in Fantasy Football


Steve Smith Sr. is one of the most prolific trash talkers in NFL history. When on the field, Smith played with a fiery passion that few WRs have ever matched.

Apparently, that passion extends to the fantasy football gridiron as well. A clip from Amazon's "All Or Nothing" shows Smith asking Cam Newton whether or not he should take Carolina Panthers then-rookie WR D.J. Moore off his bench to start John Brown, who was on the Baltimore Ravens when the show aired.

The catch? Moore was standing right there the whole time.

Hilarious stuff from Smith here. And props to Newton for continually trying to deflect the conversation, and give Moore some props. Cam even said, "You gotta start him," referring to Moore.

But, just as he was in the NFL, Smith was relentless, saying, "He's not a real wide receiver yet. He's just kind of developing." Moore could do nothing but occasionally flash a sheepish smile.

At the end of the video, Smith asks Moore, point blank, whether he should start him or Brown. After a pause that felt like it lasted for an eternity, Moore tells Smith to start him. In classic Smith fashion, he responds by telling Moore that "if you get me two points, I'm going to slap the s***" out of you."

Moore recorded three receptions for 29 yards in the week following this interaction, but there were no reports of a mysterious slap-related injury after the game.

Maybe Smith forgave him, but we'll have to wait and see if another clip like this surfaces during the 2019 NFL season.
