Tate and Ramsey have history regarding Ramsey’s former relationship with Tate’s sister. Here is some background from Ryan Dunleavy of the New York Post:
Ramsey is the father of two of Tate’s young nieces, but he reportedly ended a long-term relationship with Tate’s sister during her pregnancy last summer to date a Las Vegas dancer. Breanna Tate — a former track-and-field standout at the University of Mississippi — gave birth in September 2019, shortly before Ramsey was traded from the Jaguars to the Rams.
Ramsey’s social media photo with his new girlfriend in October 2019 brought the spat to social media. A fan replied, suggesting the Giants star should “have words” with Ramsey and Tate said, “He know he gonna have to see me.”
Tate later told The Post, “I’m not happy at all with the disrespect that he’s shown towards my sister, and the things he’s done in the past, but I don’t really want to go too much into it.”
Joe Judge reacted this way:
“We don’t want to have happen again at the end of the game what had happened. That’s not the way we want to be as a team.”
"Obviously, we want to do our fighting between the whistles"— Ralph Vacchiano (@RVacchianoSNY) October 4, 2020
