Jaguars Telvin Smith “rapped” with NFL Network Friday morning

Florida Football Insiders

The Jaguars continue to prepare for the massive opportunity against the Patriots in Sunday’s AFC Championship Game. And one of their young up and coming stars on defense, Telvin Smith, was getting some pub on the NFL Network on Friday morning.

Appearing on “Good Morning Football,” Smith was being interviewed by former Vikings and Lions WR, Nate Burleson, when he decided to “free style rap” with Smith about the Jags defense, the upcoming match-up with the Pats, etc. He then asked for the former Florida State star to respond and give some lyrics about the game, as well.

Smith did not hesitate to join in. Take a look:

Forget about “free styling,” Smith’s play along with his teammates is more to get excited about for Sunday. Last week in Pittsburgh, he scooped up a second quarter sack/fumble and raced 50 yards for a touchdown that helped the Jaguars upset the Steelers 45-42.

He also told reporters on Thursday that the NFL fined him $10,000 for taunting the Steelers LeVeon Bell by pointing at him on the way to the end zone Sunday. Smith was also flagged 15 yards for taunting on the play.

To his credit, he took full responsibility for the taunting and said he apologized to his team and wanted to publicly apologize to Bell.

Back to Smith, Jalen Ramsey, Myles Jack, Dante Fowler, etc, they are all young, and confident. Some would say cocky.

Smith has done his talking on the field, too, though. He had nine tackles in the wildcard win over the Bills and 14 more tackles last week against the Steelers. Those, by the way, are his two best back to back games all season.

It’s all seemingly working right now for Jacksonville, and let’s see if it continues in Foxboro.
