Its no wonder why he was trying to get as much money as possible.
Now days you get a penalty if you look at the QB wrong, you now get one if you lead hit/tackle with the crown of your helmet this includes defense tackling or hitting a player.
This league is out of control. These guys know the risks of playing the game. It is a choice they make and the career they choose. This may be off subject but if the NFL wants to remain the most popular sport in the world than it better chill out with all these dumb rules for player safety otherwise there wont be any players to protect cause the NFL will be a thing of the past IMO.
