Is there any reason the New England Patriots should worry about the Miami Dolphins on Thursday night? Former Patriots safety Rodney Harrison thinks so, and it has nothing to do with X’s and O’s.
Harrison joined WEEI’s “Ordway, Merloni and Fauria” on Wednesday to shed some light on the AFC East matchup, including his concerns about Tom Brady taking a cheap shot.
“You saw what (defensive end Olivier) Vernon did to (Titans quarterback Marcus) Mariota — hit him low,” Harrison said. “Ndamukong Suh has a reputation for being dirty. Cameron Wake is their best pass rusher. So if I’m concerned about anything, I’m concerned about Tom Brady taking a cheap shot from one of these guys,”
Being concerned about Brady taking a cheap shot, especially playing against Suh, is not out of the ordinary. In the past, Suh has been disciplined multiple times, including when he stepped on Green Bay Packers quarterback Aaron Rodgers’ leg last season.
