Pryor posted video of a play from the Redskins' 27-20 victory over the Rams on Sunday as part of the message to Davis. He admitted the hit wasn't necessarily dirty, but he requested the safety try to aim higher during similar moments in the future:
The 28-year-old converted quarterback is playing his second full season as a wideout. He caught 77 passes for 1,007 yards and four touchdowns with the Cleveland Browns last year to earn a one-year, $6 million contract from Washington during the offseason.
Pryor isn't the only receiver giving opponents advice about how to hit.
"He's big on don't hit him low; hit him high," Quin said. "He'll tell you on the field, like, 'Hey, bro, I'll pay your fine for you. Like, don't hit me in the legs.' He'll rather you hit him up high. Don't take his legs, because obviously you need your legs to run."
The NFL has attempted to legislate high hits out of the game, especially those against defenseless receivers, due to concerns about concussions.
Comments by Pryor and Fitzgerald show the offensive playmakers don't enjoy when defenders go low either, even though the hits may be within the rules.
