That brings us to Steelers safety Mike Mitchell, who sounded off on the NFL's over-policing of player safety while speaking to reporters Wednesday.

"I got a-holes like Matt Hasselbeck calling me a dirty player and trying my character and we've never met before", Mitchell said, while also throwing some criticism at Commissioner Roger Goodell, for failing to ensure consistency and clarity regarding the consequences for illegal hits. I feel like I've got to ask a guy, 'Hey, are you ready for me to hit you right now before I hit you?

"We can't have a guy where you just hand out discipline how you see fit".

"We gotta do better as players when we sign the next CBA". If a ball is in the air and the man jumps and a man ducks his head, how do you want me to readjust my body?

"This is football". Mitchell then goes on to discuss the reality of the NFL being a physical league and most dirty plays resulting from quarterback or wide receiver error, including a specific example of his hit on Tyler Eifert two years ago. Detroit quarterback Matthew Stafford did not throw passes at practice Wednesday as he seems to be resting the injured fingers on his throwing hand. But, you know, I thought what happened - the play that happened - happened in the context of a football play.

"That's $50,000 out of my pocket because Andy [Dalton] throws a bad ball". "I donate more money to Cincinnati underprivileged kids than, probably, the people on the Bengals". "Make that make sense", Mitchell said". So don't give me that name.

As the contract was being completed over the past few days, a relieved Blank told King that he had reached out to Jones, who, he said, "understands the contract and how we got here". We just gotta do better. "There needs to be a set of guidelines". Audio also includes Steelers center Maurkice Pouncey.

"I don't like to compare players and suspensions, things like that, but if you look at what Gronk did and what JuJu did and they got the same suspension - I don't know if that's necessarily fair", Roethlisberger said.

Lewis goes on to make a weird point about women's MMA, but then says that forcing defenders to give opponents time to make a football move is "not football". He wants to hit dudes and he wants to play the game of football the way he grew up playing it. Danny Trevathan, Mike Evans, Aqib Talib, Michael Crabtree and Smith-Schuster have all received one-game bans this season for various head shots. And the National Football League said Wednesday that they did not consider his post-play taunting of Burfict as a factor in his discipline, according to the AP's Will Graves.
