Washington Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather has been suspended two games for his sixth violation of unnecessary roughness rules.
Washington Redskins safety Brandon Meriweather has been notorious for being a dirty player across the NFL, and it will be even more difficult for him to shed his reputation now.
The hard-hitting safety received the sixth suspension of his career for a personal foul on Baltimore Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith, and he will have to sit out two games.
Meriweather has already accrued fines throughout his career, including a $42,000 fine for a helmet-to-helmet hit on Green Bay Packers running back Eddie Lacy.
Here is a tweet from ESPN Senior NFL insider Chris Mortensen confirming the safety’s punishment.
