Saints defensive back CG Gardner Johnson appeared to talk trash to Miller after he failed third in the third quarter, and Miller responded by shoving Gardner Johnson in the face.
During the Saints Bears Match in the regular season Earlier this year, Gardner Johnson put his finger inside Miller’s mask. The receiver got into it with Gardner-Johnson but matters between the two players remained relatively calm.
However, tensions then escalated between the two teams when Bears’ broadcaster Javon Wims punched Gardner-Johnson in the helmet.
The two started a quarrel and Janoris Jenkins of the Saints team tried to break it down. Wems was the only player who was sent off in the melee.
On Sunday, Miller and Gardner Johnson were awarded compensation for personal mistakes for unsportsmanlike behavior and Miller was fired. Gardner Johnson, in his sophomore year outside Florida, has gained a reputation for angering opposing attacking players.
The Saints were 7-3 ahead of the Bears at the time of the quarrel.
