Bill Belichick has seen a lot in his 36 NFL seasons. But a league executive praising a player who simply observed the rules?
One week after drawing heavy fines for illegal hits, James Harrison and Brandon Meriweather were praised by the NFL for clean play in Sunday’s victories.
The NFL delivered its message about heavier punishment for illegal hits, including suspensions, directly to the 32 teams Thursday with a video spelling out what to avoid.
One day after the league said it will begin suspending players for illegal hits, many players were asking if this still is pro football.
The NFL imposed huge fines Tuesday on three players for dangerous and flagrant hits last weekend and warned that, starting with this week’s games, violent conduct will be cause for suspension.
