If there is any smack talk out on the field this Sunday at Super Bowl 50, it won't be from Demaryius Thomas.
The Denver Broncos' wide receiver was asked whether he and Carolina Panthers' cornerback Josh Norman would be doing a little back and forth jawing on Sunday, to which Thomas replied that it simply wasn't his thing.
“No, I don’t talk on the field,” Thomas said. “I let my play do the talking between the whistles. I don’t have to talk. There’s no reason to talk. We don’t get paid to talk. We get paid to play football.”
“No. I don’t know if anybody does talk. I don’t pay attention to it. I don’t talk. I don’t get into the talking,” Thomas said. “I’ve seen him on film talking. But if he does, it’s not going to bother me. I’m going to be ready for it.”
He also does not want to give Norman any extra motivation.
“No. There’s no reason to,” Thomas said. “That makes a cornerback play better.”
Stay classy Thomas.
