Baltimore Ravens' wide receiver and general manager reveal discontent in war of words

    Rashod Bateman played college football at the University of Minnesota before being picked by the Baltimore Ravens in the first round of the 2021 NFL Draft.

    (CNN)All doesn't appear well at the Baltimore Ravens after a war of words broke out amongst members from the underperforming NFL team.

    Ravens wide receiver Rashod Bateman said on Twitter he is "tired of y'all lyin and capn on players for no reason" as he called out team general manager Eric DeCosta for his comments about the lack of success for receivers the team has previously drafted.
    DeCosta was speaking at the NFL scouting combine in Indianapolis when he admitted that he would've liked to "have some better receivers I guess."
      He continued, saying: "We've never really hit on that All-Pro type of guy, which is disappointing, but it's not for a lack of effort ... It's one of those anomalies that I really can't explain, other than to say that we're not going to stop trying."
        The Ravens are the only team to have never drafted a Pro-Bowl wide receiver since their inception in 1996.
        Bateman did not take kindly to DeCosta's remarks and took to Twitter to vent his frustration.
        "How bout you play to your player's strength and & stop pointing the finger at us and #8 [quarterback Lamar Jackson] ... blame the one you let do this .... we take heat 24/7. & keep us healthy ... care about US & see what happen... ain't no promises tho ... tired of y'all lyin and capn on players for no reason," the 23-year old wrote
