Taybor Pepper trash-talks DK Metcalf on social media after 49ers beat Seahawks

San Francisco's win over Philadelphia involved no shortage of trash-talk leading up to the game, and there was a decent bit of it thereafter.

Not surprisingly, there was a bit of trash-talk after the 49ers beat the Seahawks, too. Given the two teams' longstanding rivalry within the NFC West, coupled with a late-game fight that involved Hawks star receiver DK Metcalf, there certainly had to be some words postgame, right?

Involving long-snapper Taybor Pepper, though?

It is kind of cool that Metcalf has chosen to use American Sign Language to celebrate his touchdowns, and he did so during his lone score against the 49ers on Sunday.

However, after getting involved in that fight that led to both his ejection, along with cornerback Deommodore Lenoir, it appears as if Pepper wanted to deliver a last word.

Well played, Taybor. Well played.
