NFL player Chase Claypool was apparently involved in a bar fight in Southern California earlier this month. TMZ Sports even has video of the Pittsburgh Steelers wide receiver’s involvement, but don’t be too alarmed.
We are just now hearing about this, which probably means there won’t be a lot to come of the situation. Claypool was involved, however. It started with some light shoving, but he also kicked a guy in the face.
NFL’s Chase Claypool In Bar Fight Caught on Videohttps://t.co/5NYI7J2mFq
— TMZ Sports (@TMZ_Sports) March 24, 2021
According to TMZ, the incident took place at the Wild Goose Tavern in Costa Mesa, Calif. back on March 12. It stemmed from someone tossing dollar bills at a woman inside the bar, which caused an argument between the two parties.
We don’t know which side instigated the situation, but we do know it wasn’t Claypool in particular.
I bet fighting him wouldn’t be much fun though. He didn’t exactly look like Kimbo Slice out there in the video, but at 6-foot-4, 238 pounds, he’s got that reach. The man also threw up 19 reps of 225 back at the NFL combine, despite having 32.5-inch arms.
It all depends on the reasons for his timidity in the video. Was he second-guessing his involvement in the fight due to his NFL career, or should I just be a lot more confident if I ever have to take the guy on? Who knows.
I just know he better avoid these altercations altogether in the future. I’ve got a lot of fantasy stock in my dynasties leagues, and I don’t need injuries or suspensions. I’ve been hurt too many times in recent years with Antonio Brown and Josh Gordon.

Don’t see a problem, but he has to watch himself. I recall Eddie Murphy’s bar fight, which he recounted in the film, “Raw”, where at the end, EVERYBODY sued him, even the bystanders. Does the NFL have a rookie seminar, like the NBA, to make these young players aware of the pitfalls of money and notoriety?
He kicked a guy in the head. That’s a problem.
That’s the way to fight nowadays. Check out worldstarhiphop fight compilations. Getting someone on the ground is not enough, hitting and kicking someone when already knocked out is all the rage.
