When the Green Bay Packers played the Carolina Panthers, Panthers linebacker Thomas Davis nailed Davante Adams with a blindside hit. Adams suffered a concussion and didn’t play in the Packers’ final two games.
Adams blasted the hit on Twitter. Davis apologized on Twitter. Davis got suspended for a game.
Both players are at the Pro Bowl this week — both were replacement players. Awkward?
It certainly doesn’t appear so.

I don’t have a problem really with players getting their cash, i have a problem when their play after doesn’t justify the cash. In Davante’s case i don’t worry too much about that, i worry more about one good (bad) shot to the head.
Same. I hope formulate some sort of contigency plan
Teams may have one of their backup defenders “accidentally” head-shot Adams to take him out of a game. Then a nobody (who is barely depth) gets suspended for one or two games, but the damage will already be done, as we lose our WR1 (or 2). Needless to say, the prospect bad for Adam’s brain health.
The rules to prevent these hits from happening should be harder on the hitting player as well as his team. Something as crazy as having an equivalent player suspended (a WR1 or WR2 for Adams) for as long as the one you hit is out. That way they will truly care, from the top down.
Total TMZ Packers, a place morons.
