Raiders’ Jason Tarver Apologizes For Actions

Raiders_Jason_Tarver_2013 [1]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.”
