Sports Illustrated’s Peter King reported on Friday night’s “NBC Sports Talk” on Versus that NFL vice president Ray Anderson, who’s in charge of discipline, is “disturbed” by the way Chicago Bears safety Brandon Meriweather has played this season.
Meriweather has built a reputation over the past couple of seasons that’s put him in the category as one of the most violent and careless players in the NFL, when it comes to initiating helmet to helmet hits on opposing receivers.
Just this past Monday night, Meriweather was hit with a $25k fine for an unnecessary roughness penalty against the Detroit Lions.
The week before when the Bears played the Carolina Panthers, Meriweather was fined $20K for striking wide receiver Steve Smith.
And I’m sure many people remember when Meriweather was fined $50K after a game against the Baltimore Ravens when he was a member of the New England Patriots.
I would think that the next step for the NFL will be to suspend Meriweather, but that might be difficult since he’s been benched after last week’s loss against the Lions.
