Bears' Equanimeous St. Brown: Packers' Jaire Alexander apologized for calling me a 'scrub'


(670 The Score) Packers cornerback Jaire Alexander has apologized to Bears receiver Equanimeous St. Brown for calling him a "scrub" after Green Bay's 28-19 win at Chicago on Sunday, St. Brown told reporters Monday.

The two players were front and center in a big moment Sunday. Alexander made a game-changing interception late in the fourth quarter when he jumped in front of what he described as a "real slow" break out of a route by St. Brown, a former teammate of his. St. Brown had made a big 56-yard reception against Alexander earlier in the game. In reflecting on that play, Alexander used the word “scrub” to describe St. Brown to reporters in the visiting locker room.

Alexander has since reached out and apologized for those comments, St. Brown told reporters at Halas Hall on Monday.

“It was probably heat of the moment for him,” St. Brown said. “I don’t take anything personal. Yeah, it is what it is.

“I know how he is as a person. He’s a great player. A lot of DBs talk a lot. He apologized, it is what it is. People talk (trash).”

Signed by the Bears on a one-year deal in March, St. Brown played his first four years in the NFL with the Packers. St. Brown has 17 catches for 280 yards and one touchdown in 13 games this season.
