Packers wide receiver Davante Adams was knocked out of yesterday's game against the Carolina Panthers after he took a nasty blindsided hit from Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis.
Adams was diagnosed with a concussion and called out Daivs for headhunting after the game.
While the hit furthered even more talk on the subject of player safety, Redskins linebacker Zach Brown weighed on the situation with this ignorant response.
Tell him don't play.... cause I'm always headhunting— Zach Brown (@ZachBrown_55) December 18, 2017
You've got to be kidding, man.
Brown, who's the leading tackler in the NFL this season and one of the league's best linebackers, just painted a huge target on his back. He had no place in the conversation and things are even worse with his comment.
If the NFL wants to truly eliminate cheap shots and dirty hits out of the game, it has to be a concerted effort between the league and the players. With Browns' comments, that narrative only gets worse.
Completely ignorant statement and the biggest reason why the NFL will never be able to legislate cheapshots out of the game. Some players just don't care about their fellow players.— B Hansen (@BryanRHansen) December 18, 2017
We've seen a number of violent and unnecessary hits this season. As long as players continue to feel the way Brown does, things aren't going to get any better.
That's just the reality of the sport of football.
