Meriweather will target players knees
Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather has received discipline from the NFL on numerous occasions because of his helmet-to-helmet hits. Most recently, Meriweather served a one-game suspension this last week for two hits in the Redskins game against the Bears.
On Monday, Meriweather spoke to the media for the first time. Needless to say, probably not the greatest start if he’s looking to get back into the good graces of the NFL.
“I guess I just got to take people’s knees out,” Meriweather said Monday morning during the Redskins media availability. “That’s the only way. I would hate to end a guy’s career over a rule, but I guess it’s better other people than me getting suspended for longer.
“You just have to go low now, man. You’ve got to end people’s careers. You got to tear people’s ACLs and mess up people’s knees. You can’t hit them high anymore.”
Frustrated by the new NFL’s rules in an effort to make the league safer, Meriweather was also frustrated with Bears wide receiver Brandon Marshall. Check out the video above for more.
