NFL Players React to Roger Goodell's $200 Million Contract Extension

NFL Players React to Roger Goodell's $200 Million Contract Extension

He said Iloka's helmet-to-helmet hit on Steelers wide receiver Antonio Brown in the fourth quarter of Monday night's game in Cincinnati couldn't have been avoided. "Hand us all some flags and we'll go out there and try to grab the flags off", Mitchell said, via ESPN's Jeremy Fowler.

"He's (running) 4.4, 4.3 speed".

Steelers safety Mike Mitchell weighs in on NFL Commissioner Roger Goddell, league rules and punishments. And you're complaining because the league is taking steps to at least try and reduce it. "Make it flag football ". "That would make it easier for me, cause then I don't have to wear heavy (expletive)". That's insane. I'm going to mess around and get hurt trying to protect an offensive player because he's running an over route. Dammit, your quarterback shouldn't have thrown that ball messed up. The two fines totaled almost $60,000. "If you're a little kid and don't want to get your ass hit then don't come out here because this is for grown men".

Mitchell also received a $48,000 fine for a Week 6 hit on Chiefs running back Charcandrick West, though he appealed. The other side of that line isn't very entertaining, even if it has made Mitchell a lot of money. In fact, we saw 15 of them before the crap the Bengals and Steelers pulled on Monday night.

"That's 50 grand out of my pocket because Andy [Dalton] throws a bad ball", he said. I donate more money to Cincinnati to underprivileged kids than probably the people on the Bengals. My nephew goes to school there. Except the Hasselbeck thing anyway - he was mad that Hasselbeck said his hit on Alex Smith was dirty, but the league did fine Mitchell nearly $50,000 for the hit and Smith was pretty mad about it. And you call me a repeat offender? "There's just so much going on in the game right now".

"Fans, owners, players are all disappointed in Roger Goodell". Smith-Schuster was also flagged for standing over Burfict and taunting him after the play. On Tuesday Mitchell went on a Twitter rant about the National Football League giving Schuster the same punishment as New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski for his cheap shot on Buffalo Bills cornerback Tre'Davious White. On Sunday, after a play, Gronkowski used a heavily padded elbow to drive a blow into the back of the head of Bills cornerback Tre'Davious White, resulting in a concussion.

"It's not that I don't think they realize the dangers of the game". For people watching, I think human beings have a propensity to like violence.

Former Giant Osi Umenyiora thinks people who have a problem with the National Football League fining and suspending head-hunting players need to have their own heads examined. It wasn't away from the ball, wasn't a hit on a kicker, a defenseless player, it was a guy getting ready to make a tackle; a much bigger football player.

"It's the stupidest thing in the world", center Maurkice Pouncey said.
