Phil Simms Expects the NFL to Change Rules to Deter Low Hits

Behind The MicVideo SeriesDecember 11, 2013

The NFL has made several rule changes in an effort to deter defensive players from hitting offensive players in the head.

It would now appear that defenders are choosing to hit players around the knees to avoid any fines associated with hitting receivers high. This became evident after T.J. Ward admitted to's Pat McManamon that he hit Rob Gronkowski in the knees on Sunday to avoid a fine.

Will we see even more rule changes to protect receivers in the NFL?

Phil Simms certainly thinks that more changes are coming to protect offensive players. Check out the video to hear what Phil has to say, and let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
