Brandon Meriweather’s teammates were displeased with Monday night’s news that the Redskins’ safety would be suspended for his hit on Ravens wide receiver Torrey Smith on Saturday. That’s not surprising.
More surprising, perhaps, was that Smith also said he wouldn’t have suspended Meriweather.
“No need I’m straight,” Smith wrote on Twitter in response to the news. “Buttt since it was illegal he can donate to my foundation haha.”
Later, Smith expanded on his thoughts, writing that he wouldn’t have suspended Meriweather if he were in charge.
