Meriweather has played all out his whole career.
Washington Redskins S Brandon Meriweather has been fined and suspended this season due to his vicious play. Meriweather’s “headhunting” has headlined his name for all the wrong reasons.
Amidst a two-game suspension, Meriweather ripped on Chicago Bears WR Brandon Marshall, who was one of the many skeptics of Meriweather’s maliciousness. Meriweather also added this statement, which has again put Meriweather in the negative spotlight:
Brandon Meriweather “To be honest, you’ve just got to go low now..You gotta end people’s career. U gotta tear people’s ACL’s.” #Redskins

Meriweather’s word choice will disappoint Redskins’ staff, but this statement accurately tells the story of the modern-day NFL. Countless players have gone down with ACL/leg injuries this season, and it’s truly because of the fight against blows to the head.
ACL injuries can end careers, but they will multiple tenfold with headhunting fines and suspensions bubbling.
