Randall Cobb: Matt Elam’s hit that broke my leg was dirty

Packers wide receiver Randall Cobb told Pro Football Talk that he believes Matt Elam’s hit on him that broke his leg during the season was dirty.

“I think it was dirty,” Cobb said. “But I don’t think it was meant to be dirty.  I think with the new rules in place he was doing the opposite and trying to protect himself from getting a fine and it just caused a low hit.”

Cobb believes the NFL needs to create a hitting zone.

“I think we have to create some kind of hitting zone, some kind of targeting zone,” Cobb said.  “We’re professional athletes, we can make that type of adjustment.  We just need the repetition and practice to make the adjustment.”
