Steve Smith Sr. says Bengals would sign ‘the fool’ who jumped White House fence

Steve Smith Sr. may be freshly retired from the NFL, but he has not retired from delivering steaming hot takes.

On Sunday, Smith ripped the Cincinnati Bengals for inviting Joe Mixon to town to assess his talents. Mixon is the former Oklahoma running back who was not invited to the scouting combine because, while he is a prodigious talent, he also was captured on video punching a coed.

“Wow!!” Smith tweeted. “The #Bengals would let the fool that jump #whitehousefence play for them if he didn’t get caught!!! #Lowstandards.”

That would be Jonathan Tuan-Anh Tran, the man suspected of jumping the fence with two cans of mace and a letter to President Trump about “Russian hackers.” He was apprehended Friday night near an entrance to the mansion.

 

Smith’s Mixon comment drew criticism from one Twitter user that he should be trying to help the young man and he replied, “I don’t just talk it, I walk it out.”

Smith, who retired after last season, noted that he “came out of the womb trash-talking.” Among his more famous promises was a vow to make the Carolina Panthers regret cutting him three years ago. “I want to make sure that whatever team I go to, they’re going to get the best, in-shape 35-year-old guy they can get. If that happens to run through Bank of America Stadium, put your goggles on cause there’s going to be blood and guts everywhere.”

He was suspended for his freshman season for the assault on Molitor, and last November, he was suspended for one game after an altercation with a parking lot attendant.

As a sophomore, he rushed for 753 yards; as a junior last season, he rushed for 1,274 yards on 187 carries and scored 10 touchdowns. He caught 37 passes for 538 yards and five touchdowns.
