Raiders’ Jason Tarver Apologizes For Actions
Oakland Raiders owner Mark Davis might understand his defensive coordinator’s thought process, but it does not mean he endorses what Jason Tarver was caught doing in his team’s eventual 21-18 victory over the Pittsburgh Steelers. And Tarver himself issued a mea culpa for his actions.
Tarver flipped a middle finger, on separate occasions, at the officials after a personal foul was called on cornerback Mike Jenkins for a helmet-to-helmet hit on Steelers running back Le’Veon Bell with 8:48 left in the third quarter.
“It was just an emotional outburst by a coach in the heat of the game,” Davis told ESPN.com. “We don’t condone those actions and we’ll handle it in-house.”
