NFL exec: Meriweather hit flagrant, egregious

NFL executive vice president of football operations Ray Anderson, in an appearance on ESPN Radio's Mike & Mike Show, said that the hit by Patriots safety Brandon Meriweather on Baltimore tight end Todd Heap on Sunday was "flagrant" and "egregious," and that the NFL would consider suspensions for such hits going forward.

 

"That in our view is something that was fragrant, that was egregious," said Anderson. "Effective immediately, that’s going to be looked at at a very aggressive level, which would include suspension without pay. ... What I would tell you is that if there are flagrant and egregious violations of our current rules, we will be enforcing, effective immediately, discipline at a higher level."

 

Anderson said that the NFL will not be instituting any new rules about helmet-to-helmet hits or other shots taken at "defenseless players." Instead, he...

Florio on D&C: Trade deadline too early

Appearing on the Dennis & Callahan Show Tuesday morning, Mike Florio of ProFootballTalk.com and NBC Sports suggested that the NFL's trade deadline (which is at 4 p.m. EST Tuesday) is too early, resulting in limited activity. "You can't have a fire-sale six weeks in," Florio said. 

 

Florio predicted that neither Logan Mankins of the Patriots or the Chargers' Vincent Jackson will be moved prior to the deadline, and that he believes the most likely player to get traded is Washington's Albert Haynesworth. "I have a feeling, and it's just a feeling, something is going on," Florio said. He mentions the Houston Texans as a possible fit, citing the relationship between the two teams' head coaches, Mike Shanahan and Gary Kubiak, along with the Redskins' potential interest in running back Steve Slaton.

 

Florio also touched on the NFL's recent mandate regarding dangerous plays, saying that by including...

Report: NFL to suspend for head shots

According to ESPN.com, the NFL will announce that all "devastating hits" and "head shots" will be subject to immediate suspensions beginning in the coming weekend of games. Even players who run afoul of such a rule for the first time will be subject to suspension, NFL executive vice president of football operations Ray Anderson told the website. 



"We can't and won't tolerate what we saw Sunday," Anderson told ESPN.com. "We've got to get the message to players that these devastating hits and head shots will be met with a very necessary higher standard of accountability. We have to dispel the notion that you get one free pass in these egregious or flagrant shots."

 

Sunday saw a number of vicious hits in which players led with their helmets, including one by Patriots safety Brandon Meriweather...
