Brandon Meriweather apologizes

According to NFLPA executive director DeMaurice Smith, Brandon Meriweather is sorry for the comments he made earlier this week directed at the league's rules and Bears WR Brandon Marshall. Meriweather, who was suspended one game for helmet-to-helmet hits against the Bears, said Monday that the NFL rule changes are going to force him to hit players in the knees. Meriweather also took aim at Marshall, after the Bears receiver criticized Meriweather's playing style. Does SN think Meriweather needed to apologize?

  • "I guess I just got to take people's knees out...I would hate to end a guy's career over a rule, but I guess it's better other people than me getting suspended for longer...You can't hit them high anymore." What do you think of Meriweather's statement?
