Rivalries don’t die easily, just ask Jauan Jennings.
The Tennessee wide receiver took to Instagram on Saturday and absolutely roasted former Florida cornerback Teez Tabor.
Jennings’ post is in reference to his 67-yard touchdown catch against Tabor in Tennessee’s 38-28 victory against Florida last season. Tabor, who is projected to go in the early rounds of this year’s NFL draft, could not keep his footing against Jennings and was left watching as the Vols receiver raced to the end zone.
In the win, the sophomore receiver hauled in three catches for 111 yards and the touchdown. Jennings figures to be one of the SEC’s best receivers in 2017, and he wants everyone to remember what he’s capable of.
During his time at Florida, Tabor was considered a shutdown corner and often backed up that claim. At the NFL Combine, however, Tabor ran the 40-yard dash in 4.63 seconds, which has some questioning if he has the speed to make it at the next level.
It seems Jennings wants to remind a few people that Tabor wasn’t quick enough to hang with him last fall. That’s just what good rivals do.
